Wellbeing and mental health is worsening in outback Queensland, with 1 in 4 children indicating probable serious mental health issues. This is compounded by the financial and emotional impact on families and communities affected by drought and flood. Outback Futures pitched at TFN Live Brisbane for funding to provide much-needed mental health support services to children in remote Queensland.
