Day therapy program for personality disorders

Personality disorders are mental health conditions marked by instability in emotions, self-image and relationships. They are often accompanied by impulsive behaviours and intense fear of abandonment.

Day therapy program​

Designed for people living with personality disorders, our day therapy program helps individuals understand and better manage their symptoms, regulate their emotions, improve interpersonal relationships, and enhance their overall wellbeing.

Our program provides mental health therapies for people living with a personality disorder to help manage their symptoms better and set them on a journey of optimal mental health and wellbeing.

Our experienced mental health professionals are dedicated to providing effective interventions and guiding participants towards achieving long-lasting positive change and outcomes.

Program elements

Comprehensive assessment

The program begins with a comprehensive mental health assessment by a senior psychiatrist who develops an individualised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Group therapy sessions

We conduct our program via group therapy sessions which are facilitated by our skilled mental health team. These sessions provide a safe space to share experiences, gain insights, and learn valuable coping strategies.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)

We provide dialectical behaviour therapy, an evidence-based therapy that helps participants develop skills to regulate their emotions, manage difficult situations and improve interpersonal relationships.

Skill-building sessions

The program includes skill-building sessions in emotion regulation, self-care, communication skills, boundary setting and a range of other areas to help you effectively manage symptoms.

Mindfulness and relaxation techniques

Our program incorporates mindfulness and relaxation techniques to promote self-awareness, reduce stress, and cultivate emotional wellbeing.

Aftercare planning

To support long-term success, the program includes comprehensive aftercare planning, including relapse prevention strategies, referral to community resources, and ongoing support options.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get a referral into a mental health program?
To participate in one of our mental health programs, you will need a referral from your treating GP or psychiatrist. Alternatively you can self-refer. To find out more, contact our intake coordinator to discuss your confidential needs.
Are programs covered by private health insurance?
We can contact your health fund on your behalf and let you know what will be covered by your private health insurance fund. Most programs are covered by private health insurance (once you have served the initial wait period and are up to date with your payments). Mental health cover is also now available for upgrade and same-day use as an initiative from the Australian Government. We can explain these details and assist with any questions you may have.
What happens if I don’t have private health insurance?
If you don’t have private health insurance, you can opt to pay privately – if that is an option for you. We can provide you with a quote in advance based on your program of interest and whether you will be a day patient or an inpatient, and you can opt to pay privately.
What happens once I enrol in a program?
When you are first referred to Matilda Nepean, our intake coordinator will arrange for you to have an initial consultation with one of our team psychologists. During this appointment, the psychologist will discuss your history and current situation and their recommendations with you. This may be enrolment in one of our day programs, or potentially staying with us in the hospital and receiving mental health support as an inpatient.
