Australia is a beautiful land of wide, open spaces, which means when you are struggling with your health, it can seem a little lonely. In the empty spaces are people who need help.
Services for mental health are scarce and difficult to access in rural and regional Australia; and when there are services available, there might be an incredibly limited range, meaning that people who really need help are less likely to reach out for it or receive it. People either can’t travel to the practitioners, can’t get appointments that fit in with their busy lives, or can’t afford the services.
It is essential for mental health to find the practitioner and the treatment that works for you.
People not only need services, they need options. It is so important with mental services that you click with your practitioner. The Mindful Hub has taken this idea one step further – here you really ‘click’ with your practitioner.
If you need help – you aren’t alone.
Experts often list statistics of how common mental illness is amongst Australians, and it is no less common in remote areas. But you probably don’t need to hear that 1 in 5 people suffer from mental illness. You just know that it is real, it can be debilitating, and it is affecting your life.
If you feel like you or someone you love is in one of those empty spaces unable to get help, we can connect with you wherever you are.
