Couch Time with the Psychs
mlcoa’s second ‘Couch Time with the Psychs’ ‘on balance’ event was held in Perth, WA on 19 June in response to the positive feedback received from last year’s event.
The function was an intimate affair with 24 attendees thus allowing mlcoa clients to meet with members of the team, which included Dr Jon Spear (Psychiatrist), Dr Kevin O’Daly (Psychiatrist), Dr Stephen Proud (Psychiatrist) and Neuropsychologist, C/Prof Jonathan Foster in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. mlcoa Occupational Physician, Dr Phillip Meyerkort was also in attendance as the two specialities will often work collaboratively to assist in getting a claimant back to work or on with life.
The event gave clients the chance to seek guidance regarding difficult cases, time to ask questions pertaining to mental health matters or simply engage in conversation with mlcoa’s specialist consultants and further their own understanding.
“Sometimes assessments, particularly neuropsychological ones, can be quite complex and our goal is to remove some of the mystery around our processes which are working towards the best path for a patient’s full recovery,” Professor Foster said.
The event also enabled guests to network with others employed within similar sectors, such as the legal profession and insurance sector.
