There are things we can all do to take care of our mental health and wellbeing.

When we’re physically unwell, we talk to a doctor. In the same way, there are people we can talk to when we’re struggling with our mental health.

We'll answer your questions and help you get support that's right for you.

To connect with our team, please call 0417 703 729 during office hours.

Outback Futures does not provide crisis support.

Wellbeing is the choices, activities, and thoughts we have that affect how positive we feel, our sense of purpose, how connected we are to the people and places around us, and a whole range of other things.

I'd like tips and tools about:

  • Advocacy
  • Community, School & Workplace
  • Family
  • Other Support
