This programme is attended by inpatients and day patients who reside in the Dunedin community and attend our Therapeutic Programmes during the week, Monday to Friday.
The main Therapeutic Programme is designed to help you communicate with others and understand the reasons behind your own difficulties. This way, you will be better equipped to make personal changes in your life.
The programme's structured day has an emphasis on group meetings, as well as individual therapy with your psychotherapist or psychiatrist. You will also take part in a range of activities, from art to housekeeping, which will be an important part of your therapy.
