Why we exist

The Mental Health and Climate Change Research Network (the Network) is the first network of its kind in Australia. Its vision is to secure the mental health of rural and regional communities in a rapidly changing climate.

Our five-year-plan is to:

  • Build a strong network of motivated and involved members from across the globe
  • Establish a national and international research agenda agreed by members
  • Contribute to successful completion of research through linking field experts with academic experts
  • Contribute to the development of practical tools that can be used on the ground to support planning, service delivery, and mental health interventions
