Cabrini has opened Australia’s first private, women’s-only mental health hospital at Cabrini Elsternwick.

Located in the new Lisa Thurin Women’s Health Centre in the heart of Elsternwick, the Cabrini Women’s Mental Health service focuses on treatment for mental ill health.

This modern hospital is the first of its kind in Australia and is a prototype for subsequent services for women. This service primarily focuses on treatment for mental health conditions including:

  • Mood disorders (including depression, bipolar, premenstrual dysphoric disorder)
  • Anxiety
  • Complex trauma (including post-traumatic stress disorder PTSD)
  • Addiction

As part of Cabrini Health, this 30-bed inpatient unit with psychosocial treatment programs is coupled with new, individualised treatment methods in a private, secure and empowering setting.
