Drought Support Service: As the drought continues across the Western NSW Local Health District (WNSWLHD), the importance of our farmers remaining healthy is vital. For the first time the WNSWLHD has a Drought Support Team, that consists of everyday people with lived experience of life on the land. Hub Manager Mental Health Drug and Alcohol, Trish Bullen said, “This is a new model of care for our District and provides our communities an alternative option instead of speaking to a clinician”. To access the Drought Support Team service call (02) 6881 4002. The service runs Monday to Friday 8.30am – 5.00pm, outside of these hours anyone with concerns about their mental health or that of a friend or loved one should call the Mental Health Line on free call 1800 011 511 or contact their GP.
