Active Farmers is a service that aims to improve not only the physical health of farmers and community members in regional areas, but also their mental health and is very pleased to be able to offer their network access to the Dokotela service.
It is important to highlight that, out of the Australian population 45% will suffer from some form of mental illness in their lifetime, and over the next 12 months 20% will suffer, therefore there will and are people in regional areas suffering. A potential road block for those suffering getting help might be a combination of both location from the nearest town, plus the potential risk of invasion of privacy given the small population of regional centres.
Dokotela takes away this road block and provides specialist mental health care available where, when and how it suits you. This means that the regional population can get help from the comfort of their own home and take away the stress of both the time to travel to the nearest town and a potential invasion of privacy.

What are our clients saying?
“I really can’t rate this service highly enough. It was impossibly quick, efficient and affordable – I’m still shaking my head wondering how it even all happened. The practitioner I was speaking with set me at ease and made me feel very comfortable; I actually think talking to him this way was even easier than having to go to an office. I absolutely love this service and hope it makes it out into the general mainstream as soon as possible. Thanks Dokotela!”, Patient West Brisbane
"I was really happy with the service. It took me less than an hour to visit my local GP and see the psychiatrist and saved me a whole day of travelling back and forth to the city”, Patient Port Macquarie
