Residents of rural and remote places are often underserved by mental health resources, and many live in areas with long standing mental health professional shortages. WICHE has endeavored to identify both the challenges and opportunities to improve rural workforce development. While we will share presentations about key initiatives from the rural west, such as our WICHE Psychology Internship Initiative and the Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium's Behavioral Health Aide program, we invite participants to share information both about the rural challenges they face and the unique efforts they have made that are showing positive impact. WICHE will invite the participation of emerging leaders in the Mountain Plains area to attend and participate in this unique knowledge exchange. This is a closed event, but please contact Rebecca Helfand with any questions at rhelfand@wiche.edu.
