Psychological Therapies (formerly ATAPS)
Psychological Therapies Services (formerly known as Access to Allied Psychological Services – ATAPS) provides treatment for people that experience mild to moderate mental illness and have barriers to accessing mainstream treatment options.
Brisbane South PHN has commissioned Wesley Mission Queensland and World Wellness Group to provide Psychological Therapies Services, as such Brisbane South PHN no longer handles central intake for these referrals.
