Psychiatry & Mental Health

The 30 bed Keith Payne Unit, opened in 1996, was named in honour of Australia's only surviving Vietnam Victoria Cross recipient. The Unit has long been one of the State's leading centres for the care and treatment of veterans and war widows suffering from psychiatric disorders such as drug and alcohol problems and post traumatic stress disorder.

The Keith Payne Unit developed one of the first and finest treatment programs in Australia for veterans suffering from war-related post traumatic stress disorder.

Living & Leisure

The way we feel about ourselves is closely linked to our activities. If we are engaged in productive or pleasurable activities we tend to feel better about ourselves. Leisure activities become particularly important for people who are not in paid employment. Paid work provides much more than just an income. It gives structure to the day, provides a change of scene and contact with other people. Being productive also improves self-esteem and confidence.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder program

The PTSD Program meets the needs of veterans who are experiencing symptoms related to stress as a result of their war experience. The Program is well respected throughout Queensland and accredited by the Australian Centre for Post Traumatic Mental Health (ACPMH).
