Outcomes Minds Matter Conference

Making minds matter

A special edition of Advances in Mental Health focuses on seven papers based on selection of papers presented at  Minds Matter Conference held in Coffs Harbour, NSW, in April 2014. Culminating from our research activities into rural mental health and wellbeing, the papers focus on:

  • understanding the current gaps in our knowledge around mental health and wellbeing in rural areas
  • collaborative, community-based, contextually appropriate and multi-disciplinary approaches
  • how resilience can be enhanced amongst those identified to be most vulnerable in rural communities.

Ongoing connections between researchers, institutions and local communities will continue to contribute to positive mental health outcomes for people living in rural and remote Australia.
