Summary Rural and regional South Australian towns can now apply for up to 10 years of mental health funding and support from the Fay Fuller Foundation

Mental health funding opportunity for rural and regional South Australia

The Fay Fuller Foundation has just announced its newest funding grants, Our Town, which will see the Foundation partner with two South Australian towns for up to 10 years to tackle their specific mental health challenges.

A recent Health Needs and Priorities in South Australia report showed that mental health challenges are more prevalent in rural and remote areas.

The Fay Fuller Foundation is seeking towns that are already mobilised – or partially mobilised – around a mental health challenge but need extra help to bring their initiatives to life.

Our Town funding is not about flying in a replacement or additional service but activating and strengthening what’s already in communities for the long-term.

Our Town funding is for towns with populations of approximately 10,000 people or less, or clusters of towns with combined populations of less than 10,000 people and must be situated within the Country SA Primary Health Network.

Applications for Our Town funding close on Monday 5 August. For more information go to
