Funder: Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal
Grant Background: In a Good Place is a national grants program funded that provides support for community-driven initiatives that reduce social isolation, increase social participation and connectedness, and encourage people in rural, regional and remote communities who are at risk of, or are experiencing, mental health issues to seek help.
There are three objectives for this program:
- Reduce social isolation;
- Increase social participation and connectedness;
- Increase help-seeking.
In a Good Place supports rural, regional and remote communities in their efforts to strengthen the mental health of at-risk and vulnerable members of their communities via projects, services or activities that are preventative or responsive in nature and which are designed to engage those less likely, unable due to distance and isolation, or ineligible to participate in mainstream mental health services.
