Rural Mental Health

The Rural Mental Health (RMH) project aims to redress the inequality and imbalance between mental health provision in rural and urban areas. Funded with the financial support of the European Commission, the main purpose is to improve awareness and prevention of mental health issues in rural areas.

In this context, the project will develop informational, contextual and background information on mental health issues in rural areas and the need for basic care provision via a number of different community-led avenues. It will also develop training modules on basic care provision, in a bid to help rural educators, volunteers, employers and other actors to understand the incidence of mental health problems better and be able to identify them, and reach out to those involved.
