We’ve Got Your Back is a face-to-face, peer mental health and wellbeing support program in Far West NSW & North-East SA.
Lifeline Broken Hill Country to Coast and The Royal Flying Doctor Service South Eastern Section partnered to pilot this campaign to Far West New South Wales in 2019. With carefully selected and trained locals as the Champions of We’ve Got Your Back, this effective Partnership continues. We’ve Got Your back is funded by The NSW Ministry of Health.
We’ve got your back introduces trained Champions to provide face-to-face support for rural people from the land, engaging in genuine conversations and listening with intent, providing advocacy on the needs of those impacted by drought, linking people to appropriate services, and going places that other services don’t.
