WHO WE ARE

Country & Outback Health Inc (CObH) provides psychological, mental health, and drug and alcohol services. We were established in 2015 as a not for profit Non-Government Organisation and receive Commonwealth, State and grant funding to provide these services across rural South Australia. We have regional offices in Clare, Port Lincoln, Port Augusta, Whyalla, Port Pirie, Ceduna, Nuriootpa and Kadina. We also provide outreach services in Roxby Downs, Coober Pedy, Streaky Bay, Wudinna, Cleve, Kimba, Cowell, Arno Bay, Jamestown, Balaklava, Clare Valley, Yorketown, Ardrosson, Minlaton and Maitland.

PHILOSOPHY

CObH’s philosophy is that we consider most mental health problems are simply part of the human condition. They do not need to define us, and do not mean that there is anything wrong with us, but we may need to learn how to better manage them and change our lifestyle to better manage them.

Likewise, in the case of significant mental ill-health, we work with clients to manage their condition and to attain the greatest wellness possible. We also provide coordinated support for people with severe and persistent mental ill-health where their needs are complex.

Our commitment to the South Australian's living in the rural, and remote communities of our region, is to do what we can to improve their mental health and well-being.
