Rural Minds Workshop returning to Ceduna

The Ceduna community will once again receive a good opportunity to discuss maintaining its mental wellbeing with the return of a Rural Minds Workshop to the community.

The Rural Minds Workshop has been designed for people in rural and remote communities to learn about mental wellbeing and resilience, delivered by people from similar communities.

The workshop has been delivered across Australia in the past two years and had taken place in Ceduna about 18 months ago.

This free workshop will take place in the conference centre at the Ceduna Foreshore Hotel Motel on June 19 from 10am to 2pm with a free lunch included.

Rural Minds program coordinator Debbie Smith said it was an interactive workshop would involve education on mental wellbeing and discussions about what triggers there were in a a rural community and how to have a conversation with someone you were concerned about.

"All presenters have experience on living in the bush," she said.

"The conversation is very much driven by the participants."

Participants will get to watch videos about different topics before having a conversation about the topic.

Ms Smith said there had been great feedback from the last workshop in Ceduna and it was important to return and to keep the conversations rolling.

"It's extremely important for people to maintain their own mental wellness," she said.

"We need pathways to help when things are severe but we also need to know how to have those conversations and when to have those conversations."

Ms Smith said one topic would be succession planning for businesses and properties.
