Ways to Wellness

Who is the program for?

The Ways to Wellness outpatient program is designed for participants seeking to develop psychological skills and strategies to deal more effectively with mental health difficulties such as anxiety, depression and stress.

How will it help me?

Drawing on theory and strategies within Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, the program focuses on how to manage unhelpful thinking patterns and difficult emotions, as well as to help with dealing with life stressors more effectively.

When does it run?

The outpatient program is offered one day per week from 9:30am to 3:00pm. Participants are expected to attend for the full day and arrive on time.

Anyone can join the program at any time. Topics are rotated every 10 weeks. You will still gain the benefit of the content even if you have missed earlier topics from previous weeks. To gain the most benefit from Ways to Wellness, please stay for the full cycle.

How much does it cost?

All referrals are subject to a health fund check prior to admission or commencing a program and prior approval is sought for compensable for Workcover, TAC and Department of Veterans’ affairs (DVA) patients.
