What we do

For over 10 years now, Rural and Remote Mental Health has been delivering early intervention and prevention based mental health programs Australia-wide.

We are a non-for-profit public company limited by guarantee with deductible gift recipient status.

Our three key programs are:

Resource Minds – for the mining, quarrying, resources and construction sector

  •  Suite of 13 Toolbox Talk Presentations
  •  Mental Health for Leaders
  •  Resource Minds in Quarrying

Deadly Thinking – by and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities

  • Deadly Thinking One-Day workshop
  • Deadly Thinking Train-the-Presenter
  • Deadly Thinking YOUTH
  • Creative Livelihoods

Rural Minds – for agricultural, pastoral and farming communities

  • Rural Minds One-Day workshop
  • Rural Minds Train-the-Presenter
  • Rural Minds for Resourceful Communities

Our program objectives are to:

  • deliver culturally targeted and demonstrably effective prevention programs linked directly to early interventions;
  • raise awareness, reduce mental ill-health stigma and prevent suicides;
  • evaluate and translate the outcomes;
  • educate and train natural helpers and community leaders so as to embed skills and knowledge in communities
  • educate individuals, families and communities with pathways to help

Our tailored programs include practical workshops designed to destigmatise mental ill-health and deliver information about mental health, well-being and suicide prevention.

Rural and Remote Mental Health develops, tailors and implements mental health awareness, prevention and intervention programs Australia-wide, with our key programs culturally tailored for rural and remote communities.

We ensure that program knowledge and capability remain embedded at a local level in communities and organisations.

We constantly evaluate our programs to ensure the best and most relevant practice. Our work is evidence-based, and follows a Knowledge Translation approach.

Our culturally specific mental health programs are professionally researched, designed and administered by our team of specialists.
