How We Can Help

At Lifepoint Clinic, we understand and feel the burden of people suffering from mental health issues that are impacting their personal lives, relationships, work and studies. As the mental health burden grows in society, it is also becoming increasingly hard to get access to good mental health treatment. We strive to work with our colleagues in the health system to provide good and timely treatment to patients to the best of our ability.


Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

One in every 20 Australians suffers from ADHD and that is still underdiagnosed compared to the rest of the world. There is a lot of unhealthy stigma against the diagnosis of ADHD and untreated people often struggle with being labelled “lazy or stupid” which is not right. People suffering from ADHD, suffer from their symptoms, they are not intentionally trying to interrupt people and be rude or leave tasks unfinished. They suffer the most, feeling frustrated with unfulfilled potential, lowering their expectations of life, and struggling with anxiety and other conditions e.g. binge eating disorders that are commonly linked with untreated ADHD. At Lifepoint, we strive to give patients a fair assessment of ADHD, treatment within reasonable and healthy boundaries and explain to family members the disorder in simple terms so there can be a united approach to treating the disorder.



Over 40% of Australians have been estimated to suffer depression at some point in their lives, it’s a staggering statistic. Suffering from depression is like living in a dark room that a person can’t escape from. It’s scary, it’s frustrating and many people become exhausted trying to escape from depression. Many do not know how to get out of depression, but we believe there is a way out, it doesn’t have to end in despair. At Lifepoint Clinic, we will do our best to understand your specific situation and use our expertise to help you on your journey out of depression.



13-17% of Australians suffer from Anxiety. It is also one of the most common co-morbid conditions with chronic pain, trauma, depression, ADHD, etc. There are many different types of anxiety e.g. social anxiety, phobias, PTSD, generalised anxiety etc.. each anxiety is different and self-perpetuating. One form of anxiety can lead to another e.g. panic attacks can cause agoraphobia, and each can be disabling, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to anxiety. We endeavour to work with each patient to tailor a holistic treatment plan suited for them that would include elements of lifestyle changes, psychological interventions, and medication treatment.


Personality Disorders

About 6% of Australians suffer from personality disorders, most will likely suffer other mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety and substance abuse. There are many different types of personality disorders. A common vulnerability in personality disorders is insecurity. Feeling insecure makes a person hypersensitive to the opinions and comments of others, breeding anxiety and poor self-esteem. Common unhealthy defence mechanisms include overcompensating with a need for control e.g. OCD traits or turning to means of avoidance e.g. substance abuse or dissociation. Unless the core issues are identified and addressed, the poor person can struggle for a long time, addressing different behaviours but not the disorder. A good recovery/support team would include different parties e.g. family, friends, counsellors etc. We would like to work with you to provide a clear diagnosis and understanding of what the core issues are and be part of your recovery team.



4% of Australians suffer from psychosis, but the impact is so severe it is the third leading contributor to the burden of disease and injury in Australian males aged 15-24. Psychosis is a disorder that needs to be treated quickly with a strong focus on relapse prevention. Each recurring episode of psychosis can result in a more prolonged, severe and treatment-resistant state and carries the potential of very high-risk behaviour. All our clinicians are experienced in managing psychosis. But we also recognise that as a private service with no hospital admitting rights, we have limitations e.g. we cannot offer a multi-disciplinary team approach that some patients need. We offer to give you a thorough assessment and explanation of what is the best move forward.
