Partnering for better mental health in Edenhope

Edenhope Health and Wellbeing HUB is partnering with the Royal Flying Doctor Service and The Orange Door to bring mental healthcare and family-violence support to Edenhope.

The HUB will host psychologist Andy Golding every six weeks for in-person and telehealth appointments, as well as becoming a virtual The Orange Door outpost for people experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, family violence. 

Primary health co-ordinator Jo Grant said her team was dedicated to reducing the inequity experienced by Edenhope and surrounding communities in accessing vital supports and mental health services.

“We are thrilled to welcome these services and provide much-needed support to those experiencing mental-health issues or family violence,” Ms Grant said.

“These partnerships and initiatives aim to improve the overall health and wellbeing of Edenhope and the surrounding community.”

Edenhope HUB stocks a range of The Orange Door emergency supplies, including essential all-age backpacks, mobile phones and fuel vouchers that can be supplied immediately.

“We are always looking at ways we can support the community better and would welcome suggestions of other services or needs that would be beneficial to our community,” Ms Grant said.

Appointments with Mr Golding can be booked by calling the RFDS intake line on 8412 0480.
