Sub Acute Care Papaya

The Sub Acute Program (Papaya) is a specialist, 24 hour, short-term residential, support program that is designed to provide individualised, intensive support to persons experiencing severe mental health concerns, that are becoming unwell or have recently been discharged from Royal Darwin Hospital. Papaya provides a safe and secure, home-like environment to support recovery.

Papaya provides an individualised, person-centred program that encourages independence and promotes recovery. The aim of Papaya is to reduce hospital admission (step up) and improve the likelihood of early discharge (step down) from Cowdy Ward at Royal Darwin Hospital. At Papaya we welcome diversity and are sensitive to individual cultural and religious beliefs.
