We provide mental health and wellbeing support, including a 24/7 telephone support line and a range of mental health and wellbeing workshops, resources and education. The personal and professional demands experienced by those working in the remote health sector are significant and unique. In acknowledgment of this, CRANAplus provides mental health and wellbeing services to the rural and remote health workforce and their families.
Bush Support Line
Our Bush Support Line offers free 24/7, 365-day telephone support to Australia's rural and remote health workforce and their families. The line is staffed by psychologists with rural, remote, and cross-cultural expertise. It provides a confidential space where health workers and their families can discuss professional and personal difficulties, seek advice, and develop coping strategies.
CRANAplus develops written resources, podcasts, webinars and online learning modules to support the mental health and wellbeing of the rural and remote health workforce. We encourage you to browse our resources and share them with your colleagues or staff. Or place an order for free, professionally printed wellbeing tip sheets, posters and resources such as pens and self-care magnets.
CRANAplus provides free, flexible tailored workshops to rural and remote health workplaces across Australia. Our workshops are designed to help your team meet the challenges of providing health care in their unique setting. They can be delivered in person or online and are customised to meet your organisation’s needs.
Our psychologists also regularly produce Mindful Monday, an email that goes straight to the inbox of thousands of rural and remote health workers every Monday morning. Our newsletter helps readers to cope with the daily challenges of living and working in demanding environments and manage stress, trauma, grief, workplace conflict and other common challenges.
We welcome feedback on any CRANAplus Mental Health & Wellbeing service, including Mindful Mondays, the Bush Support Line, and our workshops. We would love to hear from you, so share your thoughts using this link.
