Register to become a Rural Minds trainerRegister
Rural and remote Australia is marked by unpredictability, isolation, economic and financial uncertainty, incessant change and extreme weather events.
No-one should feel alone and no-one should be left behind.
These challenges can have a serious impact on the mental health of the men and women who live out here. Our communities don’t enjoy the services that urban Australians take for granted.
Rural and Remote Mental Health develops and implements mental health awareness, prevention and intervention programs specifically for rural and remote communities – leaving no-one behind.
Our tailored programs include practical workshops designed to destigmatise mental ill-health and deliver information about mental health, well-being and suicide prevention. We ensure that program knowledge and capability remain embedded at a local level in communities and organisations.
Our work is evidence-based.
Our mental health programs are professionally researched, designed and administered by our team of specialists.
We constantly evaluate our programs to ensure the best and most relevant practice.
