Veteran Affairs

We take pride in providing the highest quality mental health care in a supportive safe haven environment for returning servicemen and women, retired military, veterans affairs and defence force personnel.

South Coast Private now provides our returned servicemen and Vietnam Veterans with a tranquil, caring and confidential environment to explore their mental health and emotional issues. The private ensuite rooms on level 4 of our building will be dedicated to Australian Defence Forces, Department of Veteran Affairs and Emergency Services inpatients.

If you believe that you or someone you know may need assistance with post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety or any other form of mental health disorder, contact 1800 250 000 for a confidential conversation with one of our experienced and professional specialists.
