About the Event
Hear insights from experts who are working to improve mental health services within rural and remote areas and discover what you can do to provide and advocate for equal mental health care for all Australians at the 2019 Australian Rural & Remote Mental Health Symposium.
Australians living and working in rural and remote areas are only able to access mental health services at a fifth of the rate of those in urban areas. This inequality poses serious risks for a large population of Australians, resulting in increased suffering of those seeking help, support and treatment for mental health issues.
Connect with professionals working to advance the services and support mental health receives in rural and remote areas, from renowned keynote speakers and industry workers through to government, academics, researchers and individual service providers.
