Rural Minds and The Flying Doctor

The Royal Flying Doctor Service have been operating the Drought Wellbeing Service (DWS) across Queensland since April 2015. The service provides mental health and wellbeing services to drought declared parts of Queensland.

Earlier this year, DWS partnered with Rural and Remote Mental Health to undertake presenter training for the “Rural Minds” program, which means DWS Clinicians and Coordinators are now qualified to deliver the Rural Minds program to remote and rural parts of the State.

DWS Senior Mental Health Clinician Karen Sherlock explains why “Rural Minds” is an important program which could benefit your community.
