One of the most rewarding parts of the individually tailored approach of The Banyans is the long-lasting change that comes from effective therapy. This testimony from a mother of a guest highlights the incredible, life changing outcomes that can be achieved at The Banyans Health and Wellness.

“Our daughters recurring struggle with depression led us to investigate options that would provide her the life tools that would help her identify symptoms, manage through and overcome negative cycles.

The folks at Banyans immediately understood the depth of the issues and demonstrated the multi-disciplinary skills that satisfied us to proceed.  Great care was taken by them to negotiate the pre-admission requirements and proceed through admission to their facility outside of Brisbane.


We joined our daughter on her arrival at The Banyans, a warm comfortable and secure environment that immediately made us feel we had made the right choice.


Although it was hard to leave her behind, we knew it was the right thing and that she would be better for it.

Each day we spoke with her we sensed her progress as she diligently worked through therapy, diet, exercise, life-skills, knowledge as she gained confidence to recognise and manage her condition.  One of the most impressive aspects was their scientific approach using laboratories to conduct genetic and blood analysis that informed her of her unique bio-chemistry, which they coupled with their therapeutics to arrive at satisfying conclusions.  This was so important so as to remove the stigma so often associated with mental disorders imposed by society.

She completed five weeks and returned home stronger, fitter, healthier and well prepared for the road ahead.  She has continued her support program and understands this is an important part of the continuing building blocks she is obtaining to get on and ahead building her future.  We remain optimistic and confident that our daughter is well and truly on her way.  We were very happy with all the staff input and care afforded to her.  We would recommend The Banyans team to anyone who is unfortunately affected, and are grateful that they were there for us and still are.”
