What Does It Cost To Recover From A Mental Episode?


In accordance with a Griffith University Study, 50% of clients experience reliable improvement after 8 sessions of counselling. Another 35% of clients require on average 21 sessions and the remaining 15% even longer, if they achieve any improvement at all.

As a rule of thumb, recovery takes about twice the number of sessions, say 15-40 sessions. (Australian Psychological Society. Clinicial Psychologist, Volume 14, Issue 2 July 2010, pages 39-44)

This equates to a cost of approx. $4-10,000 for a recovery.

Cost For A Single Day In Hospital

According to the MHSA (Mental Health Services Australia) the cost for treating adults in specialist mental hospitals in 2014-15 was above $1,000 per day and for children & adolescents almost $2,000 per day. Costs for treating people at home were on average $400 per day.

What Does It Cost To Recover From Eating Disorder?

Eating disorders often require 90 to 180 days of inpatient care, which will cost about $90-180,000. The costs for outpatient care, which includes medical monitoring and continuing therapy, may add another $100,000 over a period of 18-24 months. (, 2017)

With the mental health crisis growing to  epidemic proportions it’s time for all of us to lead by example and demonstrate to the world what people power stands for.

Benefit No. 1

100% of Your Money goes to People in Need

Notice that 100% of donations are going to people in desperate need of help. We do not take a cent of your donation as Change Your Past Foundation is run by volunteers only and our operational costs are funded through paid member & partnerships.


Choose Regular Payments

Please make your impact count by giving regular monthly donations. Why? Mental disorders cannot be solved in one treatment. It is an ongoing process and we cannot and will not let a person down after just one treatment. Would you?

Become a Hero

On average we require approx. $500-1,000/person/month but we can pool donations. However, if you are able to fund the entire treatment process of a person, then we will connect you to them and (if authorised) keep you updated about their progress. Become a hero, save some-one’s life single-handedly!


Give Generously

If you are making a one-off donation, please give generously. We use single donations to collect funding for retreats, where a sufferer will receive a comprehensive and complete treatment support package uninterrupted for several weeks. These retreats are very effective, but not cheap!

Honour Someone

This photo is dedicated in memory of Nelson Mandela, who taught us:

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of.”
