The Orange Declaration paper ranked in Top 10
The Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health’s (CRRMH) Orange Declaration on Rural and Remote Mental Health is having a significant impact.
The paper published in The Australian Journal of Rural Health in October last year has been ranked as the ninth most downloaded article on Wiley’s Online Library (2018-19). Of note is that all of the other papers in the top 10 are ten to twenty years old – the breakthrough of this paper, which is less than six months old, signals its potential further impact.
The Orange Declaration is the result of the collaboration and contribution of mental health researchers and services from across Australia, who came together to explore issues relating to rural mental health and wellbeing. It identifies ten solutions to problems that will improve rural mental health outcomes.
Director of the CRRMH Prof David Perkins said he and his co-authors are very pleased with how the paper is tracking and are encouraged that the issue of rural and remote mental health is resonating with people, both here in Australia and internationally.
