Drought Support

The long-term impact of stressful situations like drought can have a long-term effect on communities, including their mental health and wellbeing. There is also a ripple effect in rural communities and associated industries such as farmers, stock and station agents, cattle buyers, agricultural contractors, professional services, shops and schools.

Rural communities will need continued support to sustain mental wellbeing and to prevent mental health problems and deaths by suicide.

RAMHP links people to appropriate mental health support through training workplace and community members to recognise and provide support to someone who they think may be experiencing a mental health problem.
