Individualised Care for Mental Health and Wellbeing

RDAMR in partnership with Mental Health Partners are offering this program as part of an initiative of the Government of South Australia Office for Small and Family Business and the South Australian Small Business Strategy 2023 – 2030.

Individualised Care for Mental Health and Wellbeing Program

About the Project

The project is a completely free service for all small and family businesses in the Murraylands and Riverland region. We will also have Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) counsellors available.

Potential users will receive invitations to share their needs, preferred timing, and delivery preferences. Once we conduct a preliminary survey of targeted business owners to ensure accuracy, we will organise these criteria into user-friendly headings and fields. Each of the four communication methods mentioned earlier will offer identical choices in alignment with the pre-survey results. Potential users will be able to select options such as preferred engagement timing (including date and time selection), prioritised subject matter, delivery method (e.g., face-to-face or Zoom conference), and any preferences they have for their helper.

Are you part of the wine sector?

There are a number of services and avenues for assistance designed to support primary producers during the challenging market conditions impacting the South Australian wine sector.

These have been developed by the Wine Grape Council SA in conjunction with the Government of SA and the Department of Primary Industries and Regions.

Why are we offering this service?

Many small business owners and employees are struggling with their mental health and well-being and yet receive no help! 20% of the community has a mental health issue today and less than 50% seek or receive help!

Numerous mental health services operate within the industry, often remaining unfamiliar to the majority of consumers. Compounding this issue is the fact that consumers may never become aware of these services due to their lack of knowledge regarding the appropriate inquiries to make. Regrettably, they may never have the opportunity to seek information at a time and in a context of their choosing, initiated by them.

During consultations with our target group, which comprises Small Business Owners those affected by Recent Floods, in particular Wine Grape growers, we identified a prevailing frustration stemming from the limitations of most existing services.

These services tend to either be location-centric or offer standardised, one-size-fits-all solutions. In response to these shortcomings, we have developed a distinctive approach: personalised, one-on-one care delivered at the owner’s preferred location. This model not only caters to individual needs but also accommodates larger organisations seeking group-oriented care.

Our collaboration involves a trusted partner in the field of Mental Health Education, namely Mental Health Partners. They have access to a diverse range of specialists who are well-equipped to address the specific needs of our community, including Mental Health Social Workers, Mental Health Counsellors, Mental Health First Aiders, Financial Counsellors, Mentors, Mental Health Educators, and more.
