Co-Occurring Mental and Substance Use Disorders in Farming and Rural Communities: Assessment, Ethics, and Preventing Compassion Fatigue 

Additional session added to the three-part series: Improving Mental Health Service Access for Farming and Rural Communities 

This webinar will continue the conversation about co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders in farming and rural communities begun by Dr. Rebecca Roller and Dr. Maridee Shogren. In this follow up session Dr. Roller and Dr. Shogren will provide additional information for using assessment tools to screen for co-occurring disorders in farming and rural populations, examine the unique ethical considerations created by providing care in small communities, and touch on ways to identify and prevent provider compassion fatigue. Participant questions from the first session on Approaching and Treating Co-Occurring Mental and Substance Use Disorders in Farming and Rural Communities will be used to help guide this presentation and an expanded Q&A session will be provided.
