Workshops aim to raise awareness of stress (Rural Mental Health)

Rural counsellor Lynn Stuart helps bush people battling depression or suicidal thoughts.
The experienced local mental health worker is running a series of workshops supported by the Southern Downs Regional Council across the region focused on helping rural people affected by the floods.

She said the series aims to raise awareness about how disaster and subsequent stress can trigger mental illness and suicidal behaviour.
