Program Goals

In a Good Place supports rural, regional and remote communities in their efforts to strengthen the mental health of at-risk and vulnerable members of their communities via projects, services or activities that are preventative or responsive in nature and which are designed to engage those less likely, unable due to distance and isolation, or ineligible to participate in mainstream mental health services. The program is open primarily to non-clinical approaches which are community-based and accessible at a grassroots level in a range of settings. Priority will be given to initiatives which:

  • Are delivered via non-clinical first providers of mental health care, such as school counsellors and teachers, members of the clergy or pastoral care teams, neighbourhood or community groups, or via technological or other innovative methods.
  • Improve accessibility and availability of mental health services, tools or support to areas with limited or no access to the same;
  • Provide innovative responses which are inclusive, building social connections that lead to better mental health;
  • Confront stigma surrounding help-seeking behaviour.
