The Hermitage Centre is a private, independent Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) provider. We have staff experienced in counselling Veterans and staff who have military experience. Our location is quiet with only 4 clients at any one time. We only offer 1:1 counselling and don’t offer group therapy or AA programs as other services require.
Any Veteran with a Gold or White card can be admitted to our service if approval is granted. We offer a quiet, private and confidential service for X-military personnel who require specialised treatment for PTSD-related mental health conditions and addiction management.
Our management team can organise your DVA application for you. Approval times are up to 7-14 days only when urgent. A doctor or psychiatrist’s referral letter is required, with a medical history summary or diagnoses, DVA documentation and supporting evidence. We work with your advocacy team, the RSL and Open Arms for you to get the help you need asap.
