Private hospitals

Private hospitals

Private hospitals provide dedicated mental health services, including inpatient, day patient and community outreach services.

Some private hospitals provide services to people who are experiencing a mental health condition and are self-funding their care.

You can self-fund your care through private health insurance, the Department of Veterans Affairs or other types of insurance like WorkCover.

To access a private mental health hospital, your GP must refer you to a psychiatrist who has admitting privileges to a private hospital.

Your psychiatrist will assess you and decide whether to make a referral to the hospital.

The following private mental health hospitals are based in the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay region:
