Staying Well

The South Coast Private Healthy Minds Day Program is offered exclusively to older patients who would benefit from outpatient support to manage their mental health.

This program is designed for patients who are in recovery from a recent episode of depression and/or anxiety. It is designed to offer patients holistic support in their recovery, and provide them with psychoeducation, skills and strategies to manage their recovery, to flourish and stay well. The program is structured to be delivered by a multidisciplinary team and includes a weekly psychoeducation topic and relaxation with a psychologist, a one hour talk from a psychiatrist, a light exercise session with our exercise physiologist and an art therapy session with our art therapist.
