At Phoenix Australia, we understand trauma and renew lives. Informed by ongoing research into the latest developments in trauma treatment, our expert clinical services can offer you the best chance of recovery.
We are funded to offer our clinical services to specific population groups. These focus of each clinic is specialised ensuring that you will receive treatment from a clinician who is familiar with treatments that work specifically for you and others like you.
We operate a number of clinics for specified cohorts of patients. These clinics are funded to provide clinical services only to that cohort, and are unfortunately not available to the general public in metropolitan Melbourne except as part of a research trial. Find out more about the clinic that you are eligible for by visiting their website or clinic page.

Self-care is a great way to support yourself and your mental health. It is a simple but effective way of maintaining and promoting a general sense of well-being.
Self-care will look different for different people but can be as simple as managing your sleep, undertaking some form of exercise each day, maintaining a healthy diet or spending time with those you love. Other activities include meditation, listening to music, gratitude journaling and learning something new.
Making time to spend with people you love is another form of self-care. Staying connected is an important part of the recovery process.
Remember, it is important to choose self-care activities that fit with your lifestyle and that have a positive impact on your wellbeing
Bear in mind that a self-care strategy can be effective in helping maintain your wellbeing, but it is not a substitute for evidence-based mental health treatment.
And remember to be compassionate with yourself. It’s okay not to be okay and it is quite normal to feel like sometimes we are coping better than at other times. Sometimes we need extra support or to recharge, and that is okay.
We offer a range of intervention strategies to support posttraumatic mental health within your organisation. Explore the topics below to learn more about how to support your organisation to be trauma-aware.
