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.

Patients with a Borderline Personality Disorder diagnosis who are experiencing emotion dysregulation and self-harming behaviours can benefit from our 40 week Dialectical Behaviour Therapy program at Kahlyn Day Centre.

This renowned and well researched therapy offers tools to address these debilitating emotions and accompanying ineffective behaviours.

  • ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and Mindfulness Program
  • Self-Compassion Program
  • New Ways Program-A closed relapse prevention program for Drug and Alcohol issues.
  • Booster Programs for revision of skills in ACT and DBT

  • Balancing Bipolar Program
  • Art and Diversional Therapy

Clozaril Clinic

Doctors may recommend that a patient be treated with Clozaril™, a drug treatment for controlling the symptoms of schizophrenia (for example, hallucinations, delusions, agitation, lack of motivation and deadening of feelings). Some people start to feel better within the first few weeks, but others may take up to a year to show an improvement. The Clozaril Clinic is provided to monitor the patient's response to the treatment, provide access to clinical investigations and provide ongoing support to the patient.

Referrals into any of the programs at Kahlyn Day Centre require a referral from a Ramsay credentialled psychiatrist. If you would like more information or would like to make a referral, please contact the Site Manager or Program Coordinator at Kahlyn Day Centre.
