The program conducts activities that promote positive strategies to enhance wellbeing and resilience in drought affected areas of Dubbo, Yeoval, Narromine, Nyngan, Bourke, Coonamble, Walgett, Coonabarabran, Mudgee and Gilgandra regions, whilst providing a combination of mental and physical healthcare supports.
The Our Shout program provides hope to drought-affected communities and actively demonstrates that recovery is possible.
