Abstract: In March 2011, the Centre for Rural & Remote Mental Health Queensland (now known as the Australasian Centre for Rural & Remote Mental Health) was approached by the communities of Condamine, Dalby, Chinchilla, Goodna, Toowoomba, Pittsworth, Millmerran, Roma, Rockhampton, Miles and Nanango to assist them in recovery from the impacts of the drought and the floods. Having provided mental health prevention and early interventions prior to this flooding event, the Centre was ideally placed to assist these communities as existing staff and linkages were already in place. The Centre responded with a plan to partner with John Schumann (ex Redgum leader and writer of “I Was Only 19”) and his six piece band, the Vagabond Crew, to tour a roadshow through flooded-affected communities in late May. Each “date” was to comprise a morale-building concert and the delivery of mental health early intervention information and referrals in the context of a community event. The events were to provide a respite from the drought/flood traumas, along with specialised recovery support and information tailored for rural people and their communities about existing local psycho-social supports.
