Mental Health in Rural and Remote Australia

The latest Fact Sheets from the Alliance are on Mental Health in Rural and Remote Australia and a Rural Mental Health Help Sheet. Together they present an overview of mental health in rural and remote Australia, and a guide to support services.

The Fact Sheet on mental health points out that, despite a similar prevalence of mental illness in urban and country areas, the lack of access to mental health services and a reluctance to seek help contribute to the fact that rates of self-harm and suicide increase with remoteness.
