Mental health support locally grown in Meekatharra

The community of Meekatharra will have better access to culturally sensitive mental health support thanks to an innovative mental health training initiative.

Eighteen people from Meekatharra are currently enrolled in Grow Local, a Certificate IV in Mental Health, which is being provided free of charge to interested community members.

The program has been funded by WA Primary Health Alliance (WAPHA), after a need for this particular expertise in Meekatharra was identified.
