Each year, one in five of us will experience a mental health problem. Mental health problems are common but they are also treatable. Yet, if you live in the city, you are more likely to access help that if you live in a rural area of NSW. Welcome to 'Let's Talk', a podcast series is hosted by journalist Kia Handley all about mental health in rural and regional Australia. Hear from people who have battled with their mental health, who have been through tragedy and have come out of the other side and also from some of the people who have helped them on their journey. We hope these podcasts inspire you and we encourage you to strike up a conversation about mental health with your colleagues, friends and family. We also encourage you to share these links.
