About Kahlyn Day Centre

There has been a shift in emphasis on how mental health services should be best delivered. Whilst recognising the need for inpatient treatment for the more severe and acute presentations, alternatives to this type of care, including outpatient programs and community services, can offer a more appropriate treatment setting.

To meet this challenge of delivering mental health care treatment options, Kahlyn Private Hospital has evolved to become Kahlyn Day Centre and offers the following services.

  • Innovative group therapy programs, targeting a wide range of mental health issues, tailored to meet the needs of the individual
  • Assessment and treatment of patients with Drug and Alcohol problems, and
  • A Clozaril™ Clinic

Kahlyn Day Centre provides therapy programs to assist patients in gaining further insight into themselves and their problems. We offer a selection of therapy groups designed to meet the needs of the individual.

The main objective of the Day Centre is to provide a supportive environment created by professional staff dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the independent functioning of each patient. The aim of the Day Centre is to:

  • Promote self-awareness and teach skills and strategies, which allow patients to take responsibility and develop a sense of self-efficacy and control over their lives
  • Develop self-recognition of symptoms and a means of dealing with them by using the skills and strategies taught in group therapy sessions
  • Assist recently discharged patients who may still require support and structure in their week
  • Reduce or eliminate the frequency of inpatient hospitalisation
