Dialectical Behavioural Therapy Skills Training Program
The Dialectical Behavioural Therapy Skills Training Program is aimed at helping people learn skills to better tolerate high levels of distress, regulate emotions and improve resilience to ‘negative’ emotions, and be more effective in interpersonal relationships.
Transition to Wellness Program
The Transition to Wellness Program enables patients to receive treatment while remaining in their own home. For some, it may even be an alternative to a hospital admission. The program helps you to build a ‘toolkit’ of techniques and strategies to improve functioning; to increase self awareness; and to help you find your path towards ongoing mental wellness.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) is an effective, evidence-based treatment for treatment-resistant depression. TMS stimulates the part of the brain responsible for mood via magnetic fields from a coil placed next to the scalp. Repetitive TMS (rTMS) delivers repeated, rapid pulses during a treatment session. rTMS is used to treat depression and can be offered when patients have not responded to antidepressant medication, prefer to try an alternative to medication, or cannot tolerate antidepressant medications due to side effects.
