Country Mental Health

June 29, 2016

This week we’re discussing a topic that many people may deal with, but not many people may talk about: mental health. Our interview is with Umit Agis, Director Mental Health Strategic Operations at Country Health South Australia. 

Umit tells Kendi Burness-Cowan why regional people are less likely to see their doctor about mental health concerns, how regional mental health teams are achieving great results for patients and their families, and why open dialogue is so vital.
