Taking care of your mental health during drought

The impact of drought extends far beyond the environment and economy, effecting the mental health and wellbeing of individuals and communities, not just within agriculture, but throughout the broader community and industries.

Your local RAMHP Coordinator can help to provide information and support locally, as well as offering a variety of training options. We have also put together a range of downloadable resources below that may be helpful at this time. Or, jump straight to our full suite of resources.
