When faced with anxiety, depression, trauma, alcohol or drug dependency, it can be hard to enjoy a “normal”, fulfilling life. It can even be a struggle to do everyday things that most people seem to handle with ease. With one in every four Australians suffering from a mental health condition in their lifetime, you are far from alone. Accepting that you or a loved one needs help with a mental health conditon is the first and sometimes the hardest step on the road to recovery and the quality of life you deserve.
There’s nothing wrong, you simply need a way to get back to basics and rebuild healthy foundations of connection, confidence and fulfilment. As well as learning how to develop a range of beneficial observational tools and coping mechanisms.
At Palladium Private Health Retreat, you can step out of your normal life and focus completely on yourself and your wellbeing. With comfortable surroundings and friendly, diversely qualified professional staff, we take a holistic approach to your mental health needs – giving you the tools and support to make a complete life transformation.
Our residential program combines biological, psychological, physical, neurological and social strategies, along with a focus on nutritional elements to help you combat and eradicate the root cause of your condition.

Located in the picturesque Sunshine Coast hinterlands near Maleny and the spectacular Glasshouse Mountains, our beautiful acreage will be a world away from your normal life.
With everything you need, including comfortable accommodation, supportive staff and delicious, nourishing food, you’ll be able to regain your true inner strength whilst letting go of all the things you don’t want or need in your life anymore.
Our programs range from two weeks to several months, depending on your situation. Just long enough to get you well again. Our clients have been entrusting us with their care for over fifteen years. The program cost and structure is determined by the intensity, length, accommodation style and travel logistics. During the admissions consultations, we match the nature of your condition with the best program to deliver results. Our admissions process is non-invasive, professional and completely confidential.
Once you have had a good look around our website and feel this is something you would like to know more about, we welcome you to contact our knowledgeable admissions staff. They will speak to you confidentially about which rehabilitation program would be right for you. Alternatively, you can complete our enquiry form online and one of our consultants will contact you.
Once you’ve discussed your needs with an experienced admissions consultant and have committed to a rehabilitation program, we will start the admission process. You will be emailed admission forms, payment options, terms and conditions and a site policy. A few days prior to your program start date we will schedule a pre-admission telephone call to answer any final questions, confirm travel arrangements and admission times and calm any last-minute nerves. On arrival, our aim will be to settle you in gently and to address any initial anxiety or stress. We provide a comprehensive retreat orientation and you will be introduced to our friendly team. The purpose of the program is to create the best environment for change to take place on a large scale with no distractions and to build upon your progress daily and to learn as much as you can.
Many mental health issues can be addressed in a 14 to 28-day rehabilitation program, however, duration is not the only consideration. We customise each program depending on a guest’s condition(s) i.e. intensity of therapies and need for increased on-site support. Generally, if you have been dealing with your health issue for over a decade or more you might consider a longer program to give yourself enough time to effect lasting permanent change before you re-enter life and start to apply the techniques you will learn in the program. Conditions such as chronic alcohol abuse, long-term heavy drug addiction, extreme anxiety, crippling depression and overwhelming PTSD may need a longer program. Discuss your personal needs with one of our admission consultants as they have a comprehensive understanding of our customised holistic solutions.
