Clarity Health Care

-Our Team-

Responsive Mental Health Care

About Us

We are passionate about offering our patients an integrated psychiatric service providing clinical and practical solutions to mental health concerns. We are designed to treat a large range of clinical issues with both outreach (home-based) and office appointments. Clarity Health Care will assist you to determine the best course of treatment over the phone and within the initial consultation. We offer a best practice alternative to current mental health services and are flexible in our approach to ensure discretion, accurate assessment and comfort throughout. 

We aim to work collaboratively with your GP, psychiatrist, and/or other health care providers to achieve the best outcome for you. This includes any family members or loved ones who may need support or information during a difficult time.
