‘Together we're aiming to empower growers and regional communities to look after their mental health.’
As part of the CBH Regional Mental Wellness Program, four of the most trusted providers of mental health services have joined forces to provide the best mental health care for the Western Australian grain-growing regions, facilitated and supported by CBH.
These organisations will ensure that everyone in the grain-growing communities will have access to the support services that they need, whether access to training, counselling or a crisis support telephone line.
This page breaks down what each provider can offer and who would benefit from the service.
Black Dog Institute – Training – Suitable for GPs and Health Professionals
Lifeline WA – 24 hour Telephone Crisis Support – Video and Telephone Bereavement Counselling – Crisis Response Pack – Suitable for the whole community
Mental Illness Fellowship of WA – Training and Workshops- Suitable for Youth (13 – 19) and for the whole community

As part of our commitment to the CBH Regional Mental Wellness Program, Lifeline WA will be developing a Crisis Response Pack, that will give contact details for local services as well as advice on what to do if a community has been affected by suicide.
