Please Note: Due to unprecedented demand and a growing waitlist, Meridian Wellbeing Services are moving to a segment-of-care service model to ensure that more clients get the opportunity to access support.
What this means is that your counselling or psychological support will be focused on your individual wellness goals while being contained to a maximum of 6 sessions. Our Intake Officer will discuss this with you as will your clinician when we are planning the best care for you. Once an individual’s segment-of-care comes to a close, clients will be put back on the waitlist for further segments of care.
Meridian Wellbeing Services host the ACT’s leading, professional, peer-led counselling service for people living with HIV, people impacted by HIV, LGBTIQA+ people, their families-of-choice, carers and allies. Our qualified team provides confidential counselling for people who are seeking support to improve their mental health and wellbeing.
Meridian Wellbeing Services is committed to providing a safe, inclusive and non-judgemental therapeutic environment that values the unique lived experiences of anyone seeking counselling with our team. We welcome members of the community over the age of 15, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, cultural background, religious belief or economic circumstances.
Services are low cost and charged on a sliding scale based on annual income. Counselling services are free for Health Care Card holders and people living with HIV.
