Grand Pacific Health has been awarded the contract for the Rural Adversity Mental Health Program (RAMHP) coordination and management, by the NSW Ministry of Health.
The program has 20 RAMHP Coordinators employed by Local Health Districts across regional, rural and remote NSW - who provide health promotion and educational activities in their local communities and link individuals with appropriate services.
GPH Acting CEO Christine van den Berg, says GPH is well placed to support the coordination of this program:
“GPH has been delivering services and supports in rural and regional communities for almost 30 years.”
“GPH is a trusted provider of Primary and Psychosocial Mental Health, Youth Health, Aboriginal Health, Allied Health and Primary Care services.”
"GPH is acutely aware that mental health issues in NSW have been compounded by the drought, 19/20 bushfires, floods and COVID-19."
“This accumulation of issues can result in less early intervention opportunities and higher psychological distress.”
"GPH will provide coordination and management supports to RAMHP Coordinators so that they can continue to provide locally targeted services to rural individuals and communities," added Mrs van den Berg."
