Ambassadors

Ambassadors help support our program by raising the profile of RAMHP in rural communities.
They help us communicate the message that getting help for your mental health issues is acceptable and important and they help to reduce stigma around mental ill-health. They also help us to raise awareness about the challenges rural and remote communities face and the impact this can have on mental health and wellbeing.

Melinda Schneider

AUSTRALIAN COUNTRY MUSIC SINGER AND SONG WRITER

Melinda has her own lived experience of mental ill-health and is keen to share her story, particularly to rural communities. She has a strong connection to rural and remote communities after spending a lot of her life touring in them as a country music artist.

She’s hoping that by sharing her story it will help to reduce stigma around mental ill-health and encourage help seeking in rural communities. Melinda has been a RAMHP Ambassador since 2019.

Rural Adversity Mental Health Program - RAMHP

WHAT WILL BE YOUR BEST INVESTMENT?

After all the adversity we’ve faced, AgQuip kicks off today and it might be a good opportunity to invest in yourself - by far your most important asset on farm.

Back after 2 years of COVID cancellations, this premier event provides a unique and valuable opportunity for those in rural communities to come together and connect.

RAMHP Coordinators from Armidale, Dubbo, Tamworth and Moree will be on site for the three days (16th-18th), with a range of resources on hand, providing information around stress, looking after yourself and local services to reach out to if you need support. Additionally, you can talk to our Coordinators about the free mental health and wellbeing sessions and events they can provide in your community.

So, stop by for a chat at Ag Quip 2022. We'll be at Site EF16/17.

With all this rain, it's hard to imagine days of dry and drought. Despite this, the My Drought Story project is calling for people from regional NSW to share images and stories, highlighting how they coped during times of drought.

The project, developed in partnership with a collection of graduates from the Drought Resilience Leaders Development Program, will use selected submissions from people who’ve lived through drought, to create a book that highlights resilience in the face of adversity, and share practical methods for coping with disasters in regional areas.

The hard copy book will be made available in local libraries and council buildings as a tangible reminder of the 2017-2019 drought.

RAMHP is proud to be leading this unique and important initiative, so if you're based in regional NSW and have a drought story to share, jump onto the website and submit today.

www.ramhp.com.au/my-drought-story/

** We recognise that re-visiting the drought may be difficult for some people. If this raises any issues for you please don’t hesitate to reach out for support.
