Mental health is an important part of our overall wellbeing. Increasingly, we find that CEOs and Senior Executives are recognising the return on investment from a focus on their personal health, including mental health. This is one reason that CEOs are benefiting from a tailored and integrated wellness program at The Banyans. With the best qualified team of professionally registered practitioners, The Banyans Health and Wellness operates an excellent mental health retreat in Australia for depression and anxiety.

In an article for Australian Institute of Company Directors, Professor Allan Fels AOO, Dean of the Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG) and chairman of the National Mental Health Commission, said workplaces that promote good mental health have ‘higher levels of productivity, performance, creativity and staff retention’ 1.

In addition to the workplace benefiting from a positive approach to mental health, it can also become part of a recovery process when well understood. Director of the Australia and New Zealand Mental Health Association, psychiatrist Professor Philip Morris, writing about vocational rehabilitee and mental health, encourages people to ‘see work (or other productive activity) as part of the recovery process rather than an end in itself’ 2. This is just one reason why the aftercare part of our programs includeand address vocation and the way to positively view and participate in it.

Because the multi-disciplinary expert team at The Banyans Health and Wellness look at underlying causes of depression, anxiety and other mental health conditions, guests learn practical mindsets and tools with which to discuss and appropriately manage work stress. By treating underlying triggers, those who take time to participate in mental health retreats for depression can recover a joy and enthusiasm for their work.

One CEO recently wrote to the team at The Banyans Health and Wellness following a stay, saying:

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all of you for looking after me during my stay. When I arrived I was tired, stressed, sleepy and over my position in life and regretted some of the core decisions I had made over the last 5 years.

When I left I felt energetic, happy and ready to tackle the world. Most importantly I loved who I was and what I was bringing to the world again, after a couple of doubts.

The food, the therapy, the grounds and surrounds, the exercise and the quiet really has got me back on track and I will forever be grateful.

For those seeking a tailored and integrated mental health retreat, whether for depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, gambling, drugs or alcohol, to quit smoking or address disordered eating, the bespoke and evidence-based testing and treatment at The Banyans is the best and finest program in Australia and New Zealand, welcoming guests from India, South-East Asia, the United States, Singapore and Hong Kong and more.
