Mental health services in regional and remote Australia

Recent reports suggest that Australians living in regional and remote areas are not able to access the mental health support they need. One in five Australians will experience a mental health disorder each year, and with 29% of the population living in regional or remote areas, the need for mental health services is significant. On the Line’s Suicide Call Back Service and MensLine Australia counselling services can fill some of these gaps.
