Mental Health Week 2016

Mental Health Week 2016 was another opportunity for South Coast Private to demonstrate it’s commitment to mental health and wellbeing in our communities with a series of events, seminars, forums and exhibitions highlighting all matters mental health related.

South Coast Private accepted an invitation from the Illawarra Business Chamber to speak at a Business Before Hours breakfast on 12th October which was attended by leading business groups and prominent politicians from across the Illawarra.

This Business leaders forum followed the success of South Coast Private’s annual Art Exhibition highlighting our Art Therapy program and displaying patient artworks throughout the hospital.

We were also invited to participate in the Mental Health Exhibition in the Wollongong Mall bringing mental health matters and welfare directly into our community. We continue to be a strong advocate for mental health and wellbeing in the Illawarra and our dedicated psychiatrists, clinical teams and hospital staff strive to achieve positive outcomes for our patients and their families by providing support, encouragement and information in their journey through recovery.
