Our NDC Rural Project

NDC Rural is underway!

We are delighted to announce the 'NDC Rural' project, an exciting 3-year initiative funded as an Emerging Priority by the Commonwealth Government’s Perinatal Mental Health and Wellbeing Program. This grant aims to protect the mental health and emotional well-being of new parents in regional, rural and remote Australia.

NDC Rural is now offering 300 scholarships to health professionals wishing to complete the Neuroprotective Developmental Care (NDC or ‘the Possums Programs’) Accreditation Pathway. These scholarships are available to GPs and other health professionals in their local networks, with a view to having clusters of health professionals in the one area offering content-aligned, evidence-based support across the domains of breastfeeding/feed, sleep, cry-fuss problems and maternal mental health. Additionally, 3000 families who are patients of these general practices or services for new families will be able to participate in the Possums Parent Hub, which offers peer support, mentoring by other parents, a facilitator who is a perinatal mental healthcare professional, and a wealth of evidence-based resources for taking care of one’s baby and one’s own emotional well-being.

We are currently accepting applications for the scholarship program. If you wish to submit your details please complete the form or if you would like further information, please email our NDC Rural Project Manager (Brooke Dickson). We'd love you to join us!
