Health report not big news in rural Aust

ONE of the largest studies into adult use of mental health services in Australia has revealed that those individuals who need them most - including those living in rural and remote areas - are missing out.

The Monash University study looked at 25 million Medicare-supported mental health services provided between 2007 and 2011. It found people who lived in disadvantaged, rural and remote areas were more likely to miss out on health and it highlighted the top fifth of Australian society had about three times better access to psychological services than the bottom fifth.
