Celebrating Excellence: Sarah-Jayne Duryea’s Nomination for the Outstanding Contribution to Rural Allied Health

We are thrilled to announce that Sarah-Jayne Duryea, our Principal Psychologist and Founder at Happy Minds Psychology, has been nominated for the Outstanding Contribution to Rural Allied Health at the Victorian Rural Health Awards 2024. This nomination recognises Sarah-Jayne’s unwavering commitment and exceptional contributions to rural health, particularly in the field of psychology.

The Victorian Rural Health Awards, hosted annually by RWAV since 2005, celebrate the remarkable efforts of health professionals who go above and beyond to serve rural communities across Victoria. These awards spotlight individuals like Sarah-Jayne who have made significant impacts in their fields, ensuring that rural residents receive the best possible care.

Sarah-Jayne’s journey in rural mental health began with her vision to create a psychology practice that not only addresses the unique challenges faced by rural communities but also promotes mental wellbeing as a fundamental aspect of overall health. Under her leadership, Happy Minds Psychology has grown to become a cornerstone of mental health support in Geelong, extending services through telehealth to reach clients across all rural areas of Victoria.

The impact of Sarah-Jayne’s work can be seen in the lives of her clients and the broader community. Through Happy Minds Psychology, she has fostered a supportive environment where individuals feel safe to seek help and find tailored solutions to their mental health needs. Her advocacy for mental health awareness and her dedication to her clients exemplify the qualities that these awards seek to honour.
