Our Philosophy

At ipasen we believe that people suffering from mental health issues should be treated with the same dignity, respect and support as any other member of the community. Our facilities and support services are designed to move away from the institutional or clinical feel of traditional respite, towards the self-care and nurturing feel of a high quality day spa for the mind and body.

At ipasen we consider the mental health services we offer with a whole-of-person approach that is tailored to the individual’s needs
