United Minds is a Not-For-Profit charity founded by Managing Director, Melissa Duckmanton, in 2013 as a community based bulk billing psychology service. The purpose of the service was to bridge the gap in access to mental health support by removing the financial burden of psychological support. With postgraduate training in community psychology, our founding director worked hard to grow our traditional psychology service and our community service program, building a unique and comprehensive psychology support service. Today, we offer the local community comprehensive psychology clinic which offers both counselling and psychological assessment. Our charity division the Community Service Program (CSP) provides financial and material aid, runs a food bank and provides food hampers to those in need. The CSP also allows our mental health team to extend support outside of the therapy room by providing financial and material aid support for registered clients top support a positive mental health.
