Stress is a part of everyday life for some and it’s easy to get caught with work, relationships, friends, expectations and deadlines. Drawing the line between work and rest, me-time and family time and everything in between is a hard ask.

The Banyans Health and Wellness is more than a retreat: it’s an investment.


At The Banyans, our staff understand that mental health is an important factor that contributes to our overall physical health and wellbeing. Increasingly, we find that CEOs and Senior Executives are recognising the return on investment from taking time to step away from their busy lives and focussing on their mental health. This is one reason that CEOs and the like are benefitting from our tailored and integrated wellness programs at our mental health retreat, The Banyans.

We employ only the best, with our highly qualified team of professionally registered practitioners having a focus on bettering your mental health and wellbeing. The Banyans Health and Wellness operates an excellent and confidential mental health retreat in Australia, helping people in QLD, NSW, Victoria, and all over Australia suffering from anxiety and depression.

How Mental Health Retreats Can Benefit Australians

In an article for Australian Institute of Company Directors, Professor Allan Fels AOO, Dean of the Australia and New Zealand School of Government and chairman of the National Mental Health Commission, said that workplaces that promote good mental health have ‘higher levels of productivity, performance, creativity and staff retention’.

In addition to the workplace benefitting from a positive approach to mental health, it can also become part of one’s recovery process when well understood, as in some industries there may still be a stigma relating to mental health. Director of the Australia and New Zealand Mental Health Association, psychiatrist Phillip Morris, writing about vocational rehabilitee and mental health encourages people to ‘see work  (or other productive activity) as part of the recovery process rather than an end in itself’.

This is just one of the many reasons why the post program support element of our integrated treatment programs include and address the workplace and the way to positively view and participate in it once you leave a mental health retreat.

Because the expert multi-disciplinary team at The Banyans Health and Wellness look at underlying causes of depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions, guests learn practical mindsets and tools with which to discuss and appropriately manage work stress. By treating underlying triggers, those who take time to participate in mental health retreats for depression can recover a joy and enthusiasm for their work.


How Our Mental Health Retreats Can Help

At The Banyans, we have helped a multitude of CEOs and Senior Executives from Victoria and NSW, and around the country with high-stress jobs take back their mental and personal health.


One CEO recently wrote to the team at The Banyans Health and Wellness following a stay, saying:

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you for looking after me during my stay. When I arrived I was tired, stressed, sleepy and over my position in life and regretted some of the core decisions I had made over the last 5 years.

When I left, I felt energetic, happy and ready to tackle the world.

Most importantly I loved who I was and what I was bringing to the world again, after a couple of doubts. The food, the therapy, the grounds and surrounds, the exercise and the quiet really has got me back on track and I will forever be grateful.”
