About Us

Mission Statement

United Minds Community Services delivers a

unique and comprehensive psychology support service.  Our mission is to:

  • Help people access individual and group support regardless of their financial circumstances

  • To help bring people together to prevent and/or improve mental health

  • To extend traditional psychology by considering social contributors to mental health 

Our History

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 a low cost private psychology clinic which offers both counselling and psychological assessment. Our charity division the Community Service Program (CSP) provides eligible community members with bulk billed or concession psychology services, financial and material aid, runs a food bank and provides food hampers to those in need.
