Rural Health Connect information for clients
Rural Health Connect is a way of connect Australians in rural areas with qualified and caring psychologists.
Rural Health Connect is here to make it easier for anyone to access a psychologist. We originated in Central QLD in response to a clear and urgent need for better access to psychologists in rural areas. Now thanks to COVID-19 and other pressures, our services are needed everywhere and we have expanded our reach. Our platform has been designed to be easy to use and is end-to-end encrypted.
We are here because 45 per cent of Australians experience mental illness in their lives, one in five in any given year. Yet many people find it extremely difficult if not impossible to access a psychologist. The impact on individuals, families and communities can be huge. A lack of professionals in their area, long distances driven to appointments, time and money pressures and stigma are all contributing factors. We provide a convenient, private and affordable solution.
