The chal­lenges that rur­al and remote health work­ers face in their day to day lives are dif­fer­ent than those liv­ing with the sup­port found in larg­er region­al and urban areas. CRANAplus sees Bush Sup­port Ser­vices as vital in retain­ing a healthy and resilient rur­al and remote health work­force. Our qual­i­fied psy­chol­o­gists are expe­ri­enced in the remote sec­tor, cul­tur­al­ly aware, and know how to sup­port the men­tal health and well­be­ing of health care work­ers and their families

Call the 24/7 Bush Sup­port Line now on 1800 805 391 to find out more or check out our video.

The 24/7 Bush Sup­port Line psy­chol­o­gists can offer sup­port with what­ev­er the caller wants to talk about. This could include debrief­ing about work­place inci­dences, improv­ing stress man­age­ment skills, strength­en­ing inter­per­son­al rela­tion­ships, or under­stand­ing com­plex prob­lems. The Bush Sup­port Line is the ide­al way for health work­ers and their fam­i­lies to reach out when they need it, no mat­ter the issue.
