Understanding Mental Health

Mental illness does not discriminate and affects people from all walks of life and all socioeconomic status. Many people suffer for years in silence trying to manage their symptoms on their own with little relief.

What You Need To Know

It’s important to understand that however it may present, addiction is a complex mental health condition which often requires professional treatment and ongoing support – Addiction is not the result of weakness, moral failure or a lack of willpower.

South Pacific Private specialises in the treatment of the most widespread mental health conditions affecting Australians, including anxiety, depression and trauma (both PTSD and C-PTSD). The impact these conditions can have on individuals and their families – especially when combined with substance or behavioural addictions (dual diagnosis) – can be devastating and far-reaching.

Whichever condition your loved one is struggling with, it’s important to understand that their experiences are not a result of weakness, lack of willpower or some kind of personal failure.

Whether you or a loved one are battling addiction, feelings of loneliness, fear, shame and anger can at times feel inescapable – but it doesn’t have to be that way. Professional help and support from others who have experienced exactly what you’re going through is available, you just need to take that first step and reach out.

We Heal Families

With decades of experience, South Pacific Private is Australia’s leading treatment centre for addiction, trauma, depression and anxiety. Our uniquely comprehensive programs change lives, repair relationships and heal families by identifying and addressing the underlying causes laying the groundwork for sustained, long-term recovery.

The goal of our self-tests is not to provide you with a diagnosis for yourself or for someone you care about. Instead, they are an opportunity for you to better understand how a behaviour might be impacting upon your life or the life of your family. Use these tests to enhance your awareness of what the problem might be.

These tests should be answered honestly in order to provide accurate insight and are a chance for you to reflect upon the current situation.

Our intake team is available to answer your questions.
