Therapy Programs

GoodMind Therapeutics is happy to introduce our psychedelic-assisted therapy programs for new patients. We extend an invitation for GP referrals to our comprehensive screening, assessment services, and customised treatment plans. It’s imperative to highlight that these programs prioritise psychotherapy as their foundational approach. Please be aware that specific eligibility criteria are in place, as these treatments may not be suitable or safe for everyone.

The primary focus of our initial offering will be psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy tailored specifically for individuals with treatment-resistant symptoms of low mood, and feelings of hopelessness and despair.
Additionally, we have introduced a novel intranasal medication targeting the same symptoms, providing an alternative treatment option.
We also anticipate the imminent availability of a treatment for symptoms of mental trauma from past events, leveraging a newly accessible psychoactive substance for eligible patients.

The first step in the process is the suitability screening and assessment.

Our Screening and Assessment service encompasses:

  • Completion of an online screening form regarding mental health
  • Provision of medical history and relevant tests conducted with your GP
  • Participation in a telehealth assessment with a nurse practitioner
  • Attendance at an assessment with an Authorized Prescriber Psychiatrist, who will determine the suitability for psychedelic-assisted therapy at this time.

Screening and Assessment Service Fees:

  • Nurse practitioner assessment fee is $149, and the fee for the extended psychiatrist’s assessment is $799 . Cancellation fees apply for appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice.
  • Patients are eligible for a Medicare rebate for each appointment: approx $44 for nurse practitioner appointments and $205 for psychiatrist appointments.

Australia is the first country in the world to classify certain psychedelics as medicines

The cost of a psychedelic-assisted therapy program at GoodMind Therapeutics may be approx $25,000 and may include Medicare refundable items, potentially up to $6,000. Some private health insurers may also cover part of the fee based on your policy. Please contact your insurer for more specific information. 

Some therapy programs run for a minimum of 12 weeks and include psychotherapy sessions alongside psychedelic dosing sessions (lasting 6-8 hours) and regular psychiatrist reviews. During the psychedelic dosing, participants are supported by two clinicians and are never left alone.
