Outback Futures applies a long term, sustainable strategy to renew hope, build resilience and strengthen outback communities. We seek to shift stigma around help seeking by equipping these remote communities with the confidence and tools to identify and address their own mental health needs. Three primary tools form the basis of the Outback Futures Community Facilitation Model: genuine community engagement; multi-disciplinary face to face clinics and consistent interim tele-health support. Working at the individual, community and agency levels enables meaningful, positive change for our outback communities.
