RAMHP visible at NSW Farmers Annual Conference

RAMHP Coordinators, Jennie Keioskie, Merilyn Limbrick and Darcy Budden spoke to over 80 people at the NSW Farmers 2015 Annual Conference at Luna Park over the last two days helping to spread the word about the RAMHP program. 

"We had lots of visitors who were aware of RAMHP but wanted to know more about it. We also received lots of positive feedback about our work and our unique position to address mental health issues in rural communities" said RAMHP coordinator Jennie Keioskie. 

"It makes our job even more rewarding to hear that feeback", she said.

Inlcuded among the visitors was Policy Advisor, NSW Farmers Association Charlie Cull who shared his support for the RAMHP program.

"I've been with NSW Farmers for 18 months and it's great to see a positive outcome for farmers. You do invaluable work for rural NSW"

RAMHP would also like to thank Fiona Simpson who has stepped down after a four year term as President of NSW Farmers. Fiona's support and advocacy has been invaluable especially over the last few months.  

Thank you also to the Rural Affairs Committee and Chair Ms Sonia O'Keefe  (also on the CRRMH Community Advisory Committee) for their wide support and commitment to the program and the work achieved by the RAMHP coordinators.
