The Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health (CRRMH) is a state-wide organisation that is committed to improving the mental health, wellbeing and resilience of rural and remote residents.
The Centre focuses on the following key areas:
- The promotion of good mental health and the prevention of mental illness;
- Developing the mental health system to better meet the needs of people living in rural and remote regions; and
- Understanding and responding to rural suicide.
As the Australian Collaborating Centre for the International Foundation for Integrated Care, we promote patient-centred rather than provider-focused care that integrates mental and physical health concerns.
We work closely with local, national and international organisations, including community, industry, academic, NGOs and government to deliver the best outcomes. Click here to find out more and how you can partner with us.
We also work in partnership with Aboriginal communities to reduce Aboriginal suicide and suicide related behaviour. Click here to find out more
As part of the University of Newcastle, all of our activities are underpinned by research evidence and evaluated to ensure appropriateness and effectiveness.
