ARC grant to investigate features of mental health delivered to rural and remote farming communities for common mental health concerns, with a focus on access to tools that enable self help to overcome the tyranny of distance from service providers.
- clinical effectiveness.
- characteristics of farmers.
The study will be carried out in three phases.
- Phase 1 – Program description and logic. Available self help services will be described and program logic provided. That is, the logical theory that explains how the program’s activities are related to clear, identified, and achievable outcomes will be described. During this phase, Human Research Ethics approval will be sought.
- Phase 2 - Systematic literature review. A systematic literature review will be undertaken with an overall aim to build knowledge about the benefits of using self help tools for mental health promotion and the prevention of mental health problems in rural and remote farming communities.
- Phase 3 – Clinical effectiveness
We will investigate:
- Clinical effectiveness; improvements as a result of the use of self help mental health services.
- Patterns of presenting conditions - analyse the conversation text and associated information for patterns that calculate (or forecast) the probable condition and its severity to aid intervention and prevention.
