We understand that melanoma diagnosis and treatment can be overwhelming for patients, their carers and loved ones. We are here to provide support in many ways.

Melanoma Nurses

Our melanoma nurses provide direct care and support for our melanoma patients throughout their treatment journey.

Nurses provide support at MIA Sydney, in Perth, in the Riverina, and in partnership with Melanoma Patients Australia, we also provide a specialist melanoma nurse telehealth service to support patients in other regions.

Patient Support Groups

MIA is pleased to partner with Melanoma Patients Australia (MPA) to support melanoma patients and their carers around Australia with monthly MPA Online Support Meetings via zoom.

In addition, Support Leaders are keeping in contact with patients and carers individually.

There is also patient support available in WA and Tasmania.

MIA Clinical Psychology Service

Clinical psychology services are available at MIA, operating on Tuesday and Wednesday. Referral by a health care professional is preferred, although self-referrals are accepted. Please note that this is not a crisis mental health service.

Phone (02) 9911 7285 or email psychology@melanoma.org.au

Support Services Directory

MIA has also created a handy directory of MIA and other helpful support services, from wellbeing to psychology services.
