Supports for people living in rural and remote areas
People who live in the country do not have as many health and disability services as people who live in city areas.
For more information see the section for People who live in rural and remote communities.
Services and supports for people who live in rural and remote communities include the following:
- Specialist Intellectual Disability Health Teams have mental health workers who know how to work with people with intellectual disability. They can have appointments with you using teleconferencing or they may come to your local area. Visit the Services page for more information.
- Statewide Intellectual Disability Mental Health Hubs can give advice to your doctor or mental health worker. There is a Hub for children and a Hub for adults.
