A tailored approach, such as that of The Banyans, is extremely important in order to help young adults receive the skills required for lifelong health and wellness.

Young people often find themselves facing challenging circumstances, which are formative in their growth and development. Even small changes at this point of life can have a significant influence on their future life trajectory.

At The Banyans, each young person is provided with strategies and methods of gaining personal insight that is specific for their life stage and personal obstacles. Entirely one-on-one therapy encourages vulnerability and honesty, and removes self-censorship which can happen in group therapy.

Flexible programs

For some individuals, school or university commitments can be a barrier to engaging in a residential program such as The Banyans. However, our tailored and flexible program structure allows for arrangements that can accommodate these commitments.

Welcoming young adults

We are generally able to welcome guests from the age of 17, but may be able to support people aged 15 or 16 years if clinically suitable. Please contact our team who will advise if you, or your loved one may be suitable for our program. Our eating disorder program is able to support those over the age of 18. Every staff member at The Banyans holds a Working With Children (WWC QLD Blue Card) approval. The Banyans is one of Australia’s only residential retreats that offer private programs for young adults under the age of 18.

For youth and young adults who may be experiencing more than one condition, the personalised nature of each program can incorporate elements of treatment for multiple conditions. The Banyans can incorporate treatments for depression, anxiety, substance misuse, eating disorder, or trauma into an individualised youth and young adult program.

Young adults need a holistic approach to recovery, that will equip them with healthy coping strategies. Even small changes have big impacts on the trajectory of their lives.
