Mental Health

The New Life Centre offers mental health retreat services that provide a respite from daily life stresses allowing us to focus on our wellbeing in a serene and tranquil environment.

When we are in the midst of mental health challenges, it is understandable that we may become frustrated when previous assessment or treatments haven’t proven effective in getting us better. The commotion of daily life, with its distractions and demands, can work against our efforts to regain balance and control.

Our approach

The New Life Centre is centred around compassionate care and support. We offer a unique opportunity to unwind, release stress, and work through emotional issues at a leisurely pace supported by our experienced team of Doctors, Nurses and Therapists.

We offer informal inpatient treatment that supports mental health problems within a relaxing and welcoming environment.

Please note, we do not accept patients requiring Sectionable (compulsory) treatment under The Mental Health Act. The New Life Centre only treats patients on a completely voluntary basis.

All our packages of care are bespoke, incorporating your needs and wishes for truly personalised care.

The length of your stay is flexible, and the team will be happy to discuss this with you during the assessment period.
