DBT is a broad system of therapeutic treatments that significantly reduce the rates of suicidality and hospital admissions. One of the most important components of the treatments is the group skills training. The Dune Health and Wellbeing team are now conducting a 12-week DBT Group Skills Training Program for adolescents and adults. The program will cover the four key components of DBT: mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance and interpersonal effectiveness.
The NDIS has supports in place to help you if you have mental health issues resulting in a disability. The aim of these supports is for recovery. The word recovery, here, refers to achieving a stable state of personal, social, and emotional wellbeing.
At Dune Health and Wellbeing we seek to provide affordable and accessible psychology services for self-managed or plan-managed NDIS clients. We charge a reduced rate of $88.25 per hour for psychological services including individual therapy (via telehealth or face to face) and conducting psychological assessment and reporting.
Mental health first aid is the help provided to individuals who are developing a mental health problem, experiencing a worsening of an existing mental health problem or in a mental health crisis.
This kind of first aid is given until appropriate professional help is received or the crisis resolves.
Our team provides specialised culturally safe mental health first aid developed in line with evidence-based mental health first aid strategies.
