The physical and mental health of families in rural areas are an important focus for ICPA, especially when it impacts the education and wellbeing of students. We are grateful that our partnerships with organisations across Australia give us access to resources which we are able to share with our members and their families. To that end, we are pleased to introduce some of the more recent resources available from Dollys Dream, Nations Rural Health Alliance (NRHA) and E-Mental Health In Practice (eMHprac).
