Wellness of a Community reflects the Strength of the Individual,  their Resilience to Bounce Back and the Support Community Members give each other.

In Rural and Remote Communities, individuals are valued and people tend to look out for each other.

However, it is important to have access to resources to support people. Below a list of contacts. 
Please advise if you are aware of contacts not on this list. Or if the contacts no longer offer support services.
