Rural & Remote Mental Health (RRMH) is a not-for-profit organisation delivering mental health programs and services to Australians living in rural and remote areas of the country.

RRMH targets indigenous communities, the mining industry and the agriculture industry through three key programs: Deadly Thinking, Resource Minds and Rural Minds.

The Rural Minds program ensures communities in the agriculture and farming sectors have access to tailored programs to raise awareness of mental health issues, reduce the stigma associated with mental illness and prevent suicides. This is done through education and awareness campaigns to help individuals, families and communities gain a better understanding of the conditions and how to tackle them.

Among other valuable services and resources, the Rural Minds program can coordinate and deliver:

  • Half-day workshops
  • Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training
  • SafeTALK Training

For more information on RRMH or the workshops it coordinates, visit the Rural Minds website.
