Glove Box Guide to Mental Health 2018.

The Land and the Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health (CRRMH) have launched the 7th edition of the Glove Box Guide to Mental Health this morning, encouraging rural communities to work together and support each other during tough times.

This year the theme is Let's Work Together and the centre is inviting members of the Orange community to participate in a joint activity showcasing how they work together with their communities to build good mental wellbeing.

RAMHP program manager Tessa Caton said that one of the key aims of the launch is to demonstrate collaboration and lift the community spirit during tough times.

"Community members will have the chance to share their ideas on a large banner about how they work together with their community to build good mental wellbeing," she said. "Following on from the launch, the banner will be displayed in the Orange City Library during Mental Health Month as a reminder to the community about the good things people are doing to support each other and how they intend to support each other in the future."

This year's Guide provides practical information and education including online therapies and information on mental well-being tools and apps, as well as tips and strategies on how to stay mentally healthy. Readers can also find relevant stories and information on topics relating to youth, workplaces and communities.Personal stories throughout the Guide touch on what it feels like to struggle with a mental illness and why seeking help is so important.
