In stride towards strengthening mental health support in rural regions, the Australian Counselling Association (ACA) is proud to announce its membership with the National Rural Health Alliance (NRHA). This is an important and strategic engagement to ensure inclusion of Counsellors in workforce planning for regional, rural, and remote communities in Australia.  ACA has a diverse network of Counsellors who live and work in these communities and we are committed to doing more to support.

Jodie McKenzie (CEO) was invited to attend a special event at Parliament House to relaunch Parliamentary Friends of Rural and Regional Health, followed by the Council Strategy Day and celebration of the NRHA’s 30th Anniversary.

Emma McBride MP, the Assistant Minister for Rural and Regional Health, Mental Health, and Suicide Prevention, highlighted the shortage of healthcare workers and reiterated the government’s commitment to make healthcare more accessible. The day continued with engaging discussions about the current health situation in rural Australia and future focus.

“I was filled with much inspiration being surrounded by so many NRHA members who are truly committed and passionate about making a difference to regional, rural and remote health and hearing their stories and continued efforts. We all need to do more to ensure everyone gets the support they need. We are proud to be a member of NRHA, working together with all members to make sure rural areas in Australia have a healthy and happy future.” – Jodie McKenzie, CEO of the Australian Counselling Association
