The University of Newcastle’s Centre for Rural and Remote Mental Health (CRRMH) exists to provide leadership in rural and remote mental health research. We work closely with rural communities and our partners including health providers, government agencies, NGOs and academic researchers.
Providing evidence-based solutions to improve the mental health, wellbeing and resilience of rural and remote residents is one of the Centre’s main purposes.
Our Strategic Directions (2016-2020) focuses on:
- undertaking world-class research into rural and remote mental health and service systems,
- building research capacity in rural and remote health, and
- applying existing knowledge to make a difference in rural and remote mental health.
This is achieved through the delivery of leading mental health research by a team of researchers based both at the Centre and throughout the state.
