Kahlyn Day Centre programs are conducted in comfortable group rooms.
Kahlyn Day Centre group therapy programs can be either specialised closed groups with a start and finish date, or ongoing open groups.
The closed groups teach skills in therapies including Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) with Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Our ongoing open groups can involve art and craft activities followed by supportive psychoeducational discussions designed to assist patients in gaining further insight into their condition.
In the event of a fire, an alarm will sound and red lights flash. Staff will direct proceedings during any fire alarm. Emergency Fire Exit doors are in areas highlighted by the green and white exit lights.
Kahlyn Day Centre is committed to good health for everyone, and smoking is not permitted inside the facility, however a designated smoking area is available outside in the garden gazebo.
Limited parking is available at the Kahlyn Day Centre, but there is off-site street parking adjacent. We ask that you are mindful of the allocated spaces given to Doctors and medical couriers. Your cooperation with this request is appreciated.
