If you have a workplace injury (your injury happened whilst at work) you may be eligible for benefits as part of Workcover QLD insurance. See Workcover for further information and how to make a claim. Your workplace will be committed to ensure you are able to successfully return to work. Our Psychologists at Your Psych Centre can form an important part of your recovery whether it is a psychological injury or overcoming/adjusting to a physical injury.
When accidents and injury occurs, it can have a significant impact on your emotional health and wellbeing. Sometimes these injuries are psychological in nature (e.g. PTSD, anxiety, depression), but sometimes psychological injury can occur on top of physical injuries.
Injuries also occur as a result of motor vehicle accidents. Again, these injuries may be physical or they may be psychological because of the traumatic nature of car accidents. Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible for support and benefits though the Motor Vehicle Accident Insurance Commission. Check out their website for further details. Your Psych Centre has the experience and compassion to support you on your journey to recovery.
