Meet Our Team

RAMHP employs a distributed team of Coordinators, based across rural and remote NSW, as well as a central support team, based in Orange NSW.

RAMHP Coordinators

RAMHP Coordinators live and work across each of the seven NSW rural Local Health Districts. They use information and education strategies, and innovative projects to build on the strengths of individuals and communities and to connect people to care.

While it is important to recognise that our RAMHP Coordinators do not provide a clinical service, they may be the first point of contact many people have with mental health services.

As RAMHP coordinators are embedded in their communities, they are uniquely placed to work in partnership with a range of local agencies to facilitate better mental health outcomes and to help build a community environment conducive to good mental health and recovery.

Central Team

Our central team support the program from the CRRMH in Orange NSW. This team consists of program development, implementation and administration staff.

The team’s unique placement within a rural academic environment, ensures that the Program activities are evidence-informed, of high quality and are adequately monitored and evaluated. Researchers and Communications professionals from the CRRMH also support the work of the RAMHP team.
