Rural Health Connect
Rural Health Connect is a social enterprise that connects people in rural Australia with psychologists online using video-conferencing technology. Doing sessions online provides the benefits of face-to-face interaction with no travel time or wait time. It is a convenient, private and stigma-free way for anyone to address the way they feel. We were founded to address the urgent need for better access to mental health services in rural Australia. Our software has been specifically designed to work in areas of low bandwidth and we link in with new Medicare rebates. We particularly want to ensure our services are widely available in areas of drought or hardship.
