Finding Your Way Through the Health System to Access Mental Health Support

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s no surprise that burnout and chronic stress are on the rise, particularly among senior professionals. Ruth Limkin, founder of The Banyans Healthcare and Chief Development Officer at Sana Health Group, has seen a staggering 684% increase in enquiries for these issues in just the last twelve months.

According to Limkin, the pressures on leaders, whether in healthcare or business, have been immense in recent years, especially during times of crisis. As a result, many are now finding themselves exhausted and in need of help. This has led to a significant impact on home and family relationships, with one in three middle managers admitting to taking out work stress on their loved ones.

One of the concerning trends that Limkin has observed is the increase in alcohol consumption among stressed professionals. Many are turning to alcohol as a coping mechanism, with some even resorting to day drinking while working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To address these issues, Sana Health Group offers a wide range of treatment options, including residential and day programs at The Banyans Healthcare in Brisbane, Palladium Private on the Sunshine Coast, and Byron Private in Byron Bay. These centers provide a holistic approach to care, with a diverse team of practitioners working together to support patients in their recovery.

Limkin is passionate about using evidence-based and holistic treatment methods, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and emerging technologies like brain spotting and psychedelics. She believes that by investing more resources in the Australian health system and incentivizing a whole person model of care, we can improve access to quality healthcare and support for those struggling with burnout and chronic stress.

Ultimately, Limkin’s goal is to be a leader in behavioral health in the Asia Pacific region, providing comprehensive and compassionate care for individuals of all ages. By working collaboratively with practitioners and embracing innovative treatment approaches, Sana Health Group is paving the way for a brighter future in mental health and addiction treatment.
