Mental & Allied Health Support for Australian Outback Communities

Outback Futures applies a long term, strategic approach to facilitate intergenerational change in the suicide prevention and mental health outcomes for remote communities. We seek to shift the entrenched stigma around help-seeking by equipping rural and remote communities with the confidence and tools to identify and address their own mental health and wellbeing issues.

"The Tim Fairfax Family Foundation has been pleased to support the work of Outback Futures since 2016. We have heard first-hand about how they have empowered people to stand up to the challenges of living on the land- as individuals, families and communities. We are proud to partner with Outback Futures as they continue to work closely and compassionately with communities, supporting wellbeing and building on their strength and resilience to embrace both the challenges and joys of living in rural Queensland."
