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 The Banyans 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 multidisciplinary team at The Banyans mental health retreat 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 a Retreat For Mental Health Can Benefit You
One in five Australians will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime – it’s no longer an issue behind closed doors at home. Mental health plays a vital role in our communities and workplaces, and the more this is acknowledged, the more people will be able to seek the support they need at the time they need it.
In an article for the Australian Institute of Company Directors, Professor Allan Fels AOO, Dean of Australia and New Zealand School of Government and Chairman of the National Mental Health Commission, advises workplaces that promote good mental health have “higher levels of productivity, performance, creativity and staff retention.”
A positive approach to mental health in the workplace can help encourage those who would most benefit from a mental health retreat to feel comfortable taking time away from the office to attend one.
Philip Morris, a psychiatrist and Director of the Australia and New Zealand Mental Health Association, writes about vocational rehabilitation and mental health and encourages people to see how they participate in work, or other productive activities, as part of their recovery process rather than a means to an end.
This is one of the many reasons why the post-program support element of The Banyans integrated treatment programs address the workplace and how to positively view and participate in it once you leave a mental health retreat.

The Banyans: A Mental Health Retreat that Works
At The Banyans, we’ve helped many CEOs, and Senior Executives from Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and beyond with high-stress jobs take control of their mental and personal health.
One CEO recently wrote to the team following their stay with the following feedback:
“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 five 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 have got me back on track, and I will forever be grateful.”
