Mental Health Guide

When the Cowpat Hits the Windmill

The mental health guide When the Cowpat Hits the Windmill was launched by The Honourable Jeff Kenett AC at the NRHSN Forum on Wednesday 7th March 2007.

The Guide is a resource written by students for students focusing on mental health issues faced by Australia's future rural and remote workforce while on placement or working out bush.  It was developed by the NRHSN in conjunction with beyondblue: the national depression initiative for medical, nursing and allied health students.
