The contributions of rural communities are a foundation of our country’s economy and society. Through good times and bad, they don’t let us down. It's critical that our doctors, GPs, nurses and allied health practitioners take care of themselves so that they can keep our rural communities healthy.

#RuralHealthTogether is an initiative of NSW Rural Doctors Network (RDN) to provide rural health professionals with self-care support and access to mental health-related information, both for themselves and for their patients.
