Lakeside Clinics 51-bed general acute unit provides individual and group therapy for a range of mental health disorders. Patients with similar disorders or issues come together in the unit so they can participate in group programs aimed at learning to recognise the factors contributing to their illness and the use of effective coping strategies.
The unit also provides treatments for older adults (over 65 years of age) with mood and anxiety disorders. The treatments are designed to promote the development of their mental, social and independent living skills. Patients are treated with dignity in a family like environment that is nurturing and supportive. The unit is staffed with specialist mental health professionals including psychiatrists, psychologists, occupational therapists as well as a physiotherapist, music and art therapist and a dietitian. They work collaboratively with family, friends and external clinicians to assist the patient during their stay and after their discharge.
