Rural life and work has some great benefits, and unique challenges. When the pressures add up, it isn’t always easy to maintain your mental wellbeing or know how to support others. Rural MH101® can help.

Rural MH101® is designed specifically for people living and working in rural communities. Delivered by facilitators with rural backgrounds, this workshop will give you the tools and strategies to recognise when someone is experiencing mental health challenges, how to support them when they need it, and how to maintain your own mental health and wellbeing.

You’ll learn to better understand and relate to what someone in mental distress might be experiencing, and what to do in different situations, including when there is a risk of suicide or self harm. The workshop also covers the impacts of stress and trauma, when to share concerns, and when and how to get expert help.

Rural MH101® is designed for adults 18 years old and over.
