The Royal Flying Doctor Service (Queensland Section) in partnership with Queensland Health have launched a new campaign aimed to promote better connections to address mental health concerns.

This will equip people with the skills and knowledge to support their mental health, build confidence and ability to have difficult conversations with others, and connect with services in their own community, as well as health professionals. The Small Talk, Big Difference campaign, jointly funded by the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA), is being rolled out across monsoon-impacted shires in the state’s north-west.

This campaign provides webinars, podcasts, and other resources. To check these out, refer to the tabs at the top of the page. If you would like to contact us click here.

Learn how to Build and Maintain Stronger Connections

Most of us get through hard times in life with the help of our family and friends. We need each other. Making and maintaining connections with others, linking in with our local community and checking in – particularly with older members of our community or those who are more at risk of being isolated – is important for everyone’s wellbeing.
