The chal­lenges that face Remote Health Work­ers in their day to day lives (both at work and just by liv­ing remote­ly) are dif­fer­ent than those liv­ing with the sup­port found in larg­er region­al and urban areas. CRANAplus’ Bush Sup­port Ser­vices recog­nis­es this and offers unique and help­ful resources that draw on its vast net­work and spe­cialised knowl­edge. CRANAplus sees Bush Sup­port Ser­vices as vital in retain­ing a healthy and resilient work­force in the remote sec­tor and makes health work­er sup­port a priority.

Through Bush Sup­port Ser­vices, CRANAplus is able to pro­vide 247 per­son­alised care for remote health work­ers and their families. 

You don’t have to be a Mem­ber to utilise this service. 

Our qual­i­fied psy­chol­o­gists are expe­ri­enced in the remote sec­tor and know first-hand, the best resources for those with unique sup­port needs. We have an under­stand­ing that the par­tic­u­lar men­tal health of both Indige­nous and non-Indige­nous remote health work­ers is a result of the unique nature of remote work. Our 11 high­ly skilled team includes two Aborig­i­nal and Tor­res Strait Islander psy­chol­o­gists avail­able for coun­selling and consultation.

It’s free and it’s con­fi­den­tial. You can also remain anony­mous at all times, if you wish.

Calls from mobile phones to the Bush Sup­port Ser­vices 1800 805 391 Toll Free Num­ber can be returned at the caller’s request.
