Focus on Mental Health for National Rural Health Day

Publication Date: Oct 30, 2019

The National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health (NOSORH) created National Rural Health Day as a way to applaud the ongoing efforts, contributions, and collaborations occurring in rural communities to address the unique challenges in accessing and delivering health care services. This year, National Rural Health Day is on November 21, but activities will be held all week to celebrate. Several of these activities include webinars and trainings addressing rural mental health or rural substance use.
