With one in every four Australians suffering from a mental health condition in their lifetime, you are not alone. Accepting that you or a loved one need help with a mental health condition is the first and sometimes the hardest step on the road to recovery and the quality of life you deserve.
Over the last twelve years, we have been making a real and lasting difference to the more than 5,000 clients who have completed one of our programs. Today, we are dedicated to helping you improve your mental health and quality of life.
We understand the need for an individually tailored program which will assist people who are committed to overcoming stress related conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression and mild substance dependencies. Our results are achieved by using a range of evidence based therapies selected to target a particular condition. Our residential programs combine psychological, physical, educational and social strategies along with a focus on nutritional elements to help you combat and eradicate the root cause of your condition.
Our Programs for Depression and Anxiety
The duration of our programs vary between one to four weeks and are specifically designed to deliver outcomes for a range of stress related conditions. For example, if you have chronic depression, long-term anxiety or substance abuse issues, you will require a longer period than 7 days as you will need more time to eradicate old habits and replace them with new, more positive, sustainable ones. All talk therapy is delivered on a one-on-one basis with group activities essential for social integration as you transition for going home.
The program cost is determined by the intensity, length, accommodation and travel logistics. During the admissions consultation, we match the nature of your condition to the best program to deliver results. Our admissions process is non-evasive, professional and confidential.

Outcomes of our Natural Depression Treatment Programs
What makes us different from other programs available is what we include in the custom program and the way we deliver the program. After 12 years and over 5,000 clients, we have seen why a person thinks and acts a certain way. We know what is required to give them back their life and with a commitment from the client, we can do this. Our client completion rate is 96%. We survey each client on departure and in the months following the residential portion of their program to rate their progress, the program delivery, retreat environment, staff professionalism and service delivery. Over 85% of our clients who completed the program would recommend our programs to a friend or family member. The majority of clients have successfully achieved long-term change and are now living a life they never thought possible.
We see profound changes in our clients during our programs and some have been moved to provide video testimonials. Feel free to review the testimonials on our website or YouTube.

"The time I spent at Fountainhead is by far the most powerful, eye opening (and confronting at times) experience I have ever encountered. I have learnt life long valuable lessons and the experience has completely changed my outlook on life, how I view and experience others and most importantly, how I view myself and the life experiences yet to come my way."
- Tracey Reynolds
"To the team – thank you all so very, very much for all the catch ups, the chats and the g’days. It made my experience so wonderful and warm. You are all inspirations to me in all different ways."
