We are now nearly two decades into the 21st century and in that time there have been some major changes to to mental health treatment in Australia.
The reduction of stigma surrounding mental health or seeking treatment for a mental condition has decreased. The result is that more people are open about mental health problems and comfortable with seeking treatment because disclosing mental health problems is no longer considered to be shameful.
But despite more people disclosing having mental health problems and more resources for mental health in Australia a new study has found that the mental health of Australians is not improving as well as it should be.
One of the problems is that inadequate and non evidence based treatments can be given and often not sufficiently long enough.
At Retreat South, treatments are all evidence based. Our team are lead by psychologists and only sound, evidence based treatments are given to help your mind and body. Because we offer an intensive program, a range of treatments are offered each day of your stay so you have high quality and consistent treatment.
