Our Programs

At South Coast Private, we are committed to driving excellence in the care and ongoing recovery of our patients through dedicated day programs and advanced evidence-based practices. For full details on how to participate in any of our day programs, contact our Clinical Programs Manager on (02) 4286 6847.

South Coast Private operates a series of programs designed to target a variety of presenting clinical needs. These programs are run by experienced mental health professionals from a variety of integrated disciplines, and uses evidenced-based approaches based upon the National Guidelines and best practice.

All patients are assessed as part of their admission, to determine which program suits their clinical needs; with outcome measures used to established baseline presentation, and progress through treatment.

Programs are run for both inpatients, and day patients.

Inpatient Programs

South Coast Private runs clinical day programs for:

Day Only Programs

South Coast Private has developed a series of day only programs for patients who do not require overnight inpatient service. These programs are attended by former patients of the hospital, or those requiring clinical intervention within the community. At present, South Coast Private runs the following Day Programs.

Admission to Day Programs

To be admitted to one of our Day programs, patients will be assessed by a psychiatrist at our Wollongong Clinic. Once a referral is received by a treating General Practitioner, one of our consulting psychiatrists will undertake an initial assessment and then refer the patient for assessment by the Day Program staff. This assessment will assist in determining which program will best suit one of our patient’s specific needs. It will also assist staff in establishing a patient group which can work cohesively throughout the process.

Full day programs run between 9.00am and 2.30pm.

For more information about any of our Clinical Day or Inpatient Programs, please contact the Clinical Program Manager directly on 02 4286 6847
