Mental Health Infographic Thumbnail

Rates of mental illness do not vary much across the country - about 20 per cent of Australians had a mental health problem in the past 12 months. However Medicare expenditure per person is much lower in rural and remote areas. Tragically, suicide rates are also higher in rural and remote areas than they are in major cities.
