The day programs at The Hollywood Clinic are designed to provide patients with the skills and support they need to improve the quality and enjoyment of their lives and to break the cycle of relapse and the need for hospitalisation. The day programs, run as group therapy sessions, are conducted by our experienced and caring team including psychiatrists, psychologists, an art therapist, occupational therapists, social workers and specialist nurses.
Day Programs include:
Before you can start a day program at The Hollywood Clinic, you will need a referral from your GP or psychiatrist. All patients attending our day programs must be under the care of a private psychiatrist who needs to be accredited with The Hollywood Clinic. (After discharge, many patients find they also benefit from working with a psychologist or other health professionals to provide ongoing support.)
In most cases, costs are covered by private health insurance or by the Department of Veteran's Affairs (DVA). If you don’t have private health cover, please phone The Hollywood Clinic for information regarding costs for self-funded patients on (08) 9346 6801.
