Other conditions

Mental health conditions are wide ranging. People can experience different mental health challenges at different times in their lives or following different life experiences.

A number of Ramsay Mental Health services offer a general mental health ward, to care for patients experiencing general mental health issues and mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression.

Mental Health

Day 

The Mental Health day program is designed to give support, education and skills training to improve the quality and enjoyment in life for people experiencing mental health problems, and to help prevent relapse and repeated hospital admissions. This program assists patients who would benefit from a supportive, less structured therapeutic environment.

Rather than focusing directly on mood, anxiety, psychosis or other specific types of disorders or issues, the Supportive day program is inclusive and accepts patients experiencing a myriad of issues and symptoms. A combination of therapies is utilised to deliver a program in a supportive, encouraging and learning environment.

The group provides relief from social isolation and enables patients to discuss their current difficulties in a supportive environment and receive assistance with problem solving and goal setting. The supportive nature of the group allows members to disclose much about their issues and provides the opportunity for constructive feedback from peers. Feedback is a valued component of the group therapy experience.

Bipolar Disorder

Diagnosis of bipolar disorder is about differentiating what’s mania in the context of normal mood and also sometimes in the context of depression. The key symptoms can include a change in mood, a change in energy, drive and motivation. Most importantly, it affects functioning; the person may no longer be productive and may no longer be able to do the things they normally would be expected to do.
