Mental health a priority in Molong

Western NSW Local Health District and Rural Adversity Mental Health Program (RAMHP) recognise that the mental health and wellbeing of our local communities is of the upmost importance. As such, a free short course 'Community Support Skills' has been organised for people in Molong and the surrounding areas.

This short one and a half hour training course helps participants recognise when someone may not be travelling so well with their mental health and what friends and family can do to help them get the support they need.

The short course includes:

  • signs that someone may not be travelling well
  • understanding services and how to access them
  • how to have a conversation with someone you're worried about and encourage them to seek help
  • finding and providing help
  • how to help someone at risk of suicide
  • how to look after your mental wellbeing
