Struggling to find insight to lift barriers to support in your company or community?

Our team of experts is ready to help your business with a proactive perspective.

Everyone needs to care for their mental health. It is everyone's business to address and embrace wellbeing in the workplace and our communities.

Here at Rural Mental Health Matters, we offer a uniquely proactive whole self mental and physical health and wellbeing training and consultancy service.   

Why work with us?

We are a social enterprise focused on ensuring equitable access to support, at work and in the community. Our particular focus is on disabilities — physical and mental — and rural communities facing unique barriers to this support.

Our Founder & CEO, Melanie Costas, has over 30 years of professional and personal experience. Living with physical and mental disabilities, Melanie is also a breast cancer survivor.

Melanie and our team help companies broach accessibility and inclusion challenges, and align projects, services, or policies that are equitably designed and inclusively delivered.

Why do we do this work?

Because no organisation is inclusive, unless it's fully inclusive.
