RAMHP Christmas picture 2016

 

Getting stressed at Christmas and the holiday season is very common. Not only do people put a lot of pressure on themselves to cook the largest and best meal ever, but there are also financial pressures, and many find shopping to find gifts for people at this time of the year a nightmare. We are trying to create the Perfect Christmas.

Here are some tips from our panel on the last ONLINE FORUM on how to manage Stress over Christmas:

  1. K.I.S.S principle - Keep it simple Sweetie - don't put too much pressure on yourself. Also the kids need to be occupied - see the Reachout Summer Survival Guide for some tips.
  2. Let family know what you can do and what your limitations are, as overstretching yourself can family can create conflict.
  3. Will you accept help? Sharing the load with other family members could lessen stress levels
  4. Don’t forget to appreciate each other. Maybe Mum needs to hear from you that she is doing a great job and that you don't expect too much!
  5. Aiming for Christmas perfection can be stressful. Might be good to go for less so it's manageable. Also stay in touch with your stress levels and ensure you take some time out (if that is possible).
  6. Others can help by focus on practical things like cleaning up etc

Other tips from our Rural Adversity Mental Health Coordinators include:

- staying connected with family and friends;

- volunteer work with a charity;

- getting involved in social activities such as a community Christmas function;

- being mindful of our diet and getting enough sleep and exercise;

- being careful of excessive alcohol intake and avoiding other substances;

- trying minfulness exercises and relaxation techniques.

Remember it is essential to seek help for any mental health or drug/alcohol concern over this period. Although many services will be closed over the holiday period, support from trained staff is available through the Mental Health Line, Drug & Alcohol Helpline and local hospitals.

If you have any concerns about yourself or a loved one, please contact the Mental Health Line on 1800 011 511 (free call for landlines) or Drug & Alcohol Helpline - 1300 887 000.

LET'S TALK ABOUT TRANSITIONING BACK TO THE LAND AND MENTAL HEALTH

You are invited to take part in next month's online Friday Forum

The Land and RAMHP have partnered to get more people talking about mental health. Join us for regular sessions to talk about important mental health topics

When: Friday, 7th October at 12 noon

Where: Go to www.theland.com.au on the day and follow the links

Rural communities across Australia are currently experiencing significant social and intergenerational change, which is also impacting on the Agricultural Industry. There is a growing trend for young farmers to move off-farm for work or study, and then return at a later age (averaging 27 years).

Transitioning back to the land or rural community can be a challenge. These challenges include not only changing physical environment, but also changes in social networks, employment opportunities and roles within the family.

The agricultural industry has an optimistic outlook for the next generation of Australians. However, there is an obvious need to make sure those transitioning into the agricultural industry or back to the land remain empowered, resilient, supported and socially connected.

On October 6th, RAMHP has partnered with The Land to launch the 5th Edition of the Glove Box Guide to Mental Health . The theme for this edition is #serviceyourmind and includes strategies to help stay mentally healthy and build resilience during challenging times. It also highlights the importance of staying socially connected in communities. To coincide with this launch, this month’s online forum will focus on how to stay mentally healthy when transitioning back to the land or into a new community.

Our expert panel are ready to have an engaging discussion on the following:

• Personal experiences of transitioning back to the land

• Different examples of communities that have had a successful approach to welcoming and supporting new members

• Ideas on how to improve and continue community social connectivity, and support men and women transitioning back to the land.

In addition to hearing your ideas, our expert panel will be ready to answer your questions on the following:

• How to stay mentally healthy and strategies to enhance resilience

• How to build supportive social networks

• Driving innovation and opportunities in rural and regional communities.

The Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health and RAMHP would like to extend a warm welcome to Samantha Osborne who has been appointed as a Rural Adversity Mental Health Program (RAMHP) Coordinator working across both the Mid North Coast and Northern NSW Local Health Districts.

Samantha’s role as RAMHP Coordinator will include educating and training community and workplace groups to help connect people to care as well as develop and maintain positive partnerships with a range of local agencies to facilitate better mental health outcomes.

Sam, can you please tell us a little about yourself and your background?

I have a Bachelor of Social Work graduating from the University of New South Wales over 23 years ago. For the past 15 years I have been employed with the Clarence Valley Mental Health Service. This included 10 years in the Youth and Family team and the last five years as the Manager. This experience provided me with a wonderful opportunity to further develop skills in networking, organisational management and strategic planning. I have also worked as a TAFE teacher, Social Worker at Orange Community Health and with Mental Health Services on the North Shore of Sydney and Inner city.

 On a personal note, I grew up on the North Cost of NSW in a rural farming community and worked on the family farm, primarily producing beef and bananas. My parents were somewhat adventurous though and did break tradition to experiment with a variety of different crops (peanuts one year – highly unsuccessful!). It was a day of exhilaration and heartache when I left the farm to study in Sydney. Although I loved the city experience, with its culture and colour, it was not long before the ‘bush’ was calling me – horse-riding at Centennial Park, did not quite cut it.

What attracted you to this new role with the Rural Adversity Mental Health Program?

Growing up on the land and being employed for the majority of my professional career in rural regions the area of mental health has enabled me to develop a comprehensive understanding and insight into the adversity and trauma experienced by rural communities and to also witness the amazing strengths and resilience of individuals, families and communities.  The RAMHP position provides an opportunity to utilise my skills, knowledge and lived experience to improve the emotional and mental wellbeing of local communities. 

What are you looking forward to most about the role?

 After, several years of management, I am excited about the opportunity to be out and about, engaging with the community and service providers. The  direction of RAMHP is inspiring  and I am looking forward to working with my new  RAMHP colleagues and local communities, to assist them to  be better able to talk about mental health and mental ill health without  fear or shame and to know what services are available and how to  access them.

  What are some of your favourite activities which you do to keep mentally healthy?

Spending time with my family and friends is very important to me. Having two teenage daughters keeps me very active and connected with many sports (in particular the best   sport in the world-netball) as well as community groups.  Beach activities, camping, gardening and weekend family cooking experiments also keep me both mentally and physically healthy. 

Is there a place in the world which is special to you and why?

Camping at Valla Beach on the Mid North Coast of NSW. For the past 12 years this has been an annual adventure with my family. It is a meeting place for many of our extended family and friends providing that long awaited break, a chance to relax, share good food and experience pristine beaches. It is a place where vacuum cleaners, irons, computers and the notion of routine are forbidden!

LET'S TALK ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH AND SUICIDE

There is ongoing concern about mental health and suicide in rural and remote NSW.
Life can be tough and problems can seem overwhelming at times. It can be very difficult to know what to do and how to cope, but there is help available.

To mark World Suicide Prevention Day on the 10th of September and R U OK? Day on the 8th of September this month's online forum will focus on mental health and suicide.

Our expert panel are ready to answer your questions about a number of important issues, including:
• preventing suicide and providing support in tough times

• how to have a difficult conversation
• how to reduce stigma associated with mental illness, and
• understanding what it is like to be bereaved by suicide.


Fiona Livingstone

Having spent 10 years on a farm and married to a farmer, Fiona understands the unique pressures that are faced by the farming community. Having lived and worked in rural communities her entire life, Fiona is passionate about the mental well-being of people in rural and remote communities. Fiona is also studying a law degree and hopes to apply this in some way that will assist people living with a mental illness, whether this be through advocation work, lobbying for changes in legislation.

Rose Hogan
Rose Hogan has a community welfare background of 30 years, including family support, domestic violence court advocacy, a trainer and educator. She has worked with people across the age span and in regional and remote locations. Rose works within a trauma informed and strength based approach and is a staunch advocate for collaborative practice among service providers, acknowledging it takes many to support a healthy and vibrant community.

Rachael is passionate about mental health advocacy and reducing the stigma associated with mental health, with a particular focus on youth. She is involved with co-ordinating many events across the region, doing a wonderful job engaging all sectors of the community.

Alice works in Orange and sees clients from across the lifespan with a range of issues including grief and loss, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, psychosis, substance abuse and chronic stress. Thoughts of suicide and self-harm are therefore common symptoms that Alice's client's seek help for - but something Alice is committed to working through with them, having had both personal and professional experiences of how suicide can affect a family and a rural community.

 

2016 Carpe Diem Tour Poster Promo 2

 

Carpe Diem tour helps break down mental health stigma

What is Carpe Diem?

Carpe Diem is a live theatre performance that addresses mental health in rural communities. Written by Arts and Health production company, Centre Stage Scripts and starring acclaimed actor John Wood, Carpe Diem is a contemporary portrayal of every day Australian males dealing with issues of health, grief, loss and depression. It stresses the importance of professional care in times of crises, and highlights the importance of mateship and looking out for each other.

Set in a fictional town in inland Australia, Carpe Diem portrays the friendship of Nev, a hard-working farmer, and John his stock agent friend. Both have been impacted by the long-running drought and each are suffering their own personal crisis. Carpe Diem stresses the importance of mateship and professional care in times of crises. It is a comedy that delivers the mental health messages in a way that is entertaining, immediate and highly relevant.

 In November 2015 RAMHP Coordinator Helen Sheather had the opportunity to review Carpe Diem in Albury as part of a tour through workplaces in Southern NSW and Northeast Victoria.

 Recognising the potential the play could provide in disseminating strong mental health messages to small rural communities in an entertaining way, Helen approached writer Megan Rigoni with the idea of touring the play in the Murrumbidgee Local Health District. (MLHD).

 An inaugural planning meeting was arranged with Megan, Helen and RAMHP Coordinator Merilyn Limbrick in January 2016 and a partnership was formed. An Expression of Interest to host the tour was sent to 21 Local Government Areas within the MLHD and after extensive consultation, twelve shires responded favourably.

 Where will the tour visit?

The tour will visit the rural communities of Henty, Holbrook, Gundagai, Junee, Temora, Boorowa, West Wyalong, Lake Cargelligo, Ganmain, Coleambally, Berrigan, Corowa and Lockhart from October 14th – 28th 2016.

 Each event will include:

  • A performance of Carpe Diem
  • A Q&A with the actors to discuss the themes in the play
  • A community event to meet with the actors and local service providers
  • Access to evidenced based information relating to mental health and wellbeing and access to services.

How will the play help to break down the stigma of mental health? 

Leading actor John Wood, who has partnered with Ms Rigoni on two previous productions, said: “It’s a very Australian thing (not just male, necessarily) to feel that it’s none of our business and that someone knows what they’re doing. But men need to ask the questions and not ignore their apparent depression or inner pain.”

Chris Pidd, supporting actor and general manager at Lifeline Albury, said: “This compelling story will help breakdown the stigma of seeking support early when life gets tough. The play depicts so beautifully how two mates can help each other in times of need.”

More about the tour

 Rural Adversity Mental Health Coordinators Helen Sheather and Merilyn Limbrick are excited to be working in partnership with each community to ensure the event is accessible, relevant, inclusive and delivered free to the community, reaching the widest possible audience.

 The tour is funded by Riverina Bluebell, RAMHP, Murrumbidgee Local Health District, Department of Primary Industries, National Disability Coordination Officer Programme and multiple funding partners in each of the communities.

“Many local organisations are working hard to ensure this event is free so everyone has an opportunity to come together and participate in this fun and engaging evening, Ms Sheather said.

“There will be an opportunity for the community to meet with the actors and hear their own personal stories which brings a unique quality to the event.”

 If you, or someone you know may be experiencing mental illness call the MLHD Access Line on 1800 800 944 or the NSW Mental Health Line on 1800 011 511 to arrange local support.

Tessa Caton Corporate Picture

 NEW Appointment - Partnerships Manager

The Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health (CRRMH) would like to extend a warm welcome to Tessa Caton who has been appointed as the new Partnerships Manager for the Rural Adeversity Mental Health Program (RAMHP).

Tessa has made the brave move of relocating from sunny Queensland to Orange, located in the Central West region of NSW.  

As the Partnerships Manager for RAMHP, Tessa's her role will include developing and maintaining positive partnerships between the Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health (CRRMH) and the Mental Health Services in rurally-based Local Health Districts in NSW and with a range of other key stakeholders who are critical to the successful implementation of the Rural Adversity Mental Health Program (RAMHP)

Tessa, can you please tell us a little about yourself and your background?

Professionally, I have spent the last 6.5 years working for one of the Big Four Accounting Firms, Deloitte, in their Health Economics & Social Policy Team. Life as a consultant was very diverse, I have been involved in major efficiency reviews for tertiary hospitals, advised on business cases for hospital redevelopments, evaluated numerous health and social policy programs and written health service plans for both Local Health Districts and Primary Health Networks. I was also lucky enough to spend 12 months in Toronto, Canada with Deloitte undertaking various strategic planning projects.

Personally, I grew up on a small farm just outside Toowoomba, Queensland. I went to school there, but my twin sister and I soon fell for the big city lights of Brisbane and moved to attend university. On weekends you can find me at the local farmers markets, water skiing or enjoying a Pilates class.  I absolutely love to travel! The next destination will hopefully be snow skiing in Japan.

What attracted you to this new role working for the Rural Adversity Mental Health Program?

Rural mental health has been a long standing passion of mine, and something I have always wanted to pursue further. I was immediately drawn to the Centre of Rural and Remote Mental Health’s strong reputation for producing leading research and education resources for the rural health services of NSW. 

What are you looking forward to most about the role?

I am looking forward identifying and engaging the various health and non-health related stakeholders to enable RAMHP to continue to successfully make an impact on the mental wellbeing of rural communities. 

Travelling to the various rural locations and immersing myself in the local communities is something I am particularly excited about.

What are some of your favourite activities which you do to keep mentally healthy?

Making time to catch up with friends, cooking a meal from one of my favourite healthy eating bloggers and going to Pilates!! 

Is there a place in the world which is special to you and why?

Boston, USA. My twin sister and I met there after spending 2 years apart. We had the most wonderful weekend shopping, trying the fabulous food and exploring the city. We then had to say goodbye for another year!!

NEW RESOURCES: Let's talk rural mental health

Mental health problems don’t discriminate.

Each year, approximately 1 in every 5 Australians will experience a mental illness. Less than half of those people access professional help.  

Finding help in rural areas can sometimes feel like a challenge, but there is help and support available, no matter who or where you are.

Let’s talk about how and where to find help, so none of us have to feel alone.

As part of Mental Health Month, RAMHP has launched a NEW range of factsheets providing evidence- based information on where and when to find help for mental health concerns and how to have a conversation with your GP.  These factsheets are available to download or you can request copies by calling the Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health on 02 6363 8444 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Helping Hand Resouce June2016
 
 A comprehensive resource for communities impacted by the cessation of funding for Community Mental Health and Family & Relationship Counselling and Support services. 

The booklet: ‘Helping Hand for Western NSW – Pathways to Services’ was funded through the Australian Government Drought Assistance Program 2016 and is a collaborative project between Rural Adversity Mental Health Program (RAMHP), Catholic Community Services (who funded printing), Richmond PRA, Centacare Bathurst (Dubbo Office), Interrelate, Uniting, House with No Steps, Schizophrenia Fellowship and Centacare Wilcannia-Forbes.

Thanks to Richmond PRA and Centacare Bathurst, 20,000 copies of the resource will be delivered to properties and PO Boxes in the specified communities including: Bourke, Brewarrina, Cobar, Coonamble, Gilgandra, Nyngan, Walgett, Warren and the Warrumbungles area. It will also be distributed via a number of local services and events over the coming months.

RAMHP Coordinator Camilla Kenny who was part of the project team, said the booklet was developed after organisations came together to work how they could help communities in need of this information.

“The booklet aims to provide ongoing information on local support services covering mental health concerns, family and relationship services; as well as other rural support services that deal with financial and agricultural issues.

“We hope the resource will provide reassurance to communities that there are local services available that can help; as well as 24 hour helpline services and a variety of reliable and useful online Apps. No-one should feel isolated or alone”, said Camilla. 

The booklet includes sections on each Local Government Area plus information on district wide services and 24 hour support services.

This year's Glove Box Guide to Mental Health was officially launched by the Minister of Mental Health, the Hon. Pru Goward (via video) on Thursday 6th October during mental health month.

The theme for the Guide is #ServiceYourMind.

Personal stories touch on what it feels like to struggle with a mental illness and why seeking help is important. Also what do people have in their toolkit to help them cope or get through tough times and what has helped with their recovery.

This year a total of 44,000 copies of the Guide will reach almost 115,000 readers across NSW and beyond. An extra 25,000 will be distributed by the Centre and RAMHP workers in the field.

The 2016 Glove Box Guide to Mental Health is available with The Land after Thursday 6th of October or online.

We look forward to sharing photos from across NSW during mental health month.

 

 

Stacey Doosey 2016

Stacey Doosey, new RAMHP Coordinator for Hunter New England LHD

Stacey hails from Inverell and will cover the Hunter New England Local Health District.

Welcome to the RAMHP team Stacey. Can you please tell us a little about yourself and your background?

My name is Stacey Doosey and I originally grew up in a small farming area in the Hunter Valley. I grew up chasing cows and playing in the paddocks and rivers from sunrise to sunset. My favourite memory of being a farm kid is definitely the endless amounts of pets we had including dogs, cats, chooks, ducks, cows, horses, pigs and; at one time a little sweet nanny goat.

When I finished school I decided that because I enjoyed talking to and helping people I would study nursing. I went on to study my nursing degree at Newcastle University and quickly realised after some work experience in mental health that this was the area I was most interested in.

After I graduated I worked across different areas of mental health in the Newcastle area, ranging from adult inpatient, forensic mental health and and community mental health. Being able to help people and their families during tough times has been incredibly rewarding. Furthermore, seeing people’s improvement and recovery has encouraged me to work with communities affected by mental health issues.

I have always enjoyed learning and over the years I became a bit of a study bug, always wanting to learn more and improve my knowledge. I have completed further post graduate studies and hold a Masters in Mental Health Nursing and a Masters in Management.

What attracted you to this new role working for the Rural Adversity Mental Health Program?

The decision to apply for a RAMHP position was quite an easy one for me. Being able to combine my background of growing up in a rural area and my experience as a mental health nurse was very exciting. Reaching and helping individuals, families and communities become more aware of mental health issues was what attracted me to the role.

After reading up on the website about the great work that RAMHP has been able to achieve over the years, I was certain I wanted to be involved!

What are you looking forward to most about the role?

I’m looking forward to visiting rural areas and meeting their communities and providing information and education about the importance of caring for our mental health. I’m keen to connect and talk to people as well as hear people’s stories. This role will allow me to see places and meet people that I wouldn’t have otherwise had the chance to do. I’m hoping that through my role I will be able to make a difference and change perceptions of mental health whilst also encouraging every individual I meet to really care about their community’s mental wellbeing, not just their own.

What are some of your favourite activities which you do to keep mentally healthy?

One of my favourite activities I do is to go out for a walk each day. I love reading and often will get my nose stuck into a good book for thirty minutes before bed time. I enjoy keeping in touch with friends and families; and adore my little kitten George.

I’ve always been a bit of a dreamer so something that I find has been really grounding for me is making goals and planning how I can achieve them. This might include trying a new recipe for dinner once a fortnight or planning an overseas holiday.  I find being future orientated and having something to work toward keeps me positive.

Is there any advice you would tell your 10 year old self if you had the chance?

Don’t dream too much about being a grown up! Stay a kid as long as you can. You will learn there are things in life that do and don’t matter.  As you get older don’t sweat the small stuff, save the energy for when you really need it.

Lastly, zucchini and broccoli really aren’t that bad… you’ll learn that (albeit it will take you until your mid 20’s to do so but you will).

What are three things on your bucket list?

  1. Speak fluent French (I’ve started to learn but can only really confidently order a cheese baguette at this stage).
  2. Lot’s more travel - would love to visit Cinque Terre, Italy.
  3. Conquer my fear of heights by climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Thank you Stacey, RAMHP is very lucky to have your experience and passion and we look forward to working with you.  Stacey can be contact on e: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
