Self-care for Rural Psychiatrists

Course Overview

The three online learning modules in this course are designed to provide rural and remote psychiatrists with an interactive learning experience to both learn about and practice self-care.

Each module contains information, activities and resources to assist you to look after yourself – physically, mentally and emotionally.

These modules have been funded by the Australian Government and reflect the experience in Australia; however they may also be useful for psychiatrists or trainees working in metropolitan Australia or those working in New Zealand.

Each module should take you approximately 20 minutes to complete. However, as these are self–paced modules, you can take your time.

The following modules have been endorsed by the RANZCP for CPD hours (when all three modules are completed).


  1. Self – Assessment Techniques
  2. Self – Care Techniques
  3. Dealing with Barriers and Challenges

Additional Resources

  1. Sassertive communications – Improving Assertiveness Self-Help Resources – Information Sheets (
  2. TED talk on art of saying no – The Art of Saying No: Kenny Nguyen at TEDxLSU – YouTube
