From the Bench to the Ranch

Event Description

Increasingly, rural systems of care are employing a range of Evidence-Based Practices (EBPs), such as Assertive Community Treatment (ACT), supported employment, and supported housing, to meet the needs of persons with serious mental illness. Rural systems often modify these EBP’s in some manner to accommodate rural environments that consistently contend with workforce limitations, small populations, intermittent broadband and cell phone service, and long distances.   


Join us for this important knowledge exchange on Tuesday, 9/24 and Thursday, 9/26, from 9:00 am MT – 12:00 pm MT. Please note this training has been changed from an in-person event to two virtual training sessions.

In Session 1, we will focus upon the science and adaptation of EBP to rural practice.   

In Session 2, we will focus on rural implementors and providers discussing their real-world rural challenges to implementation and on-going adoption challenges and opportunities.  This will be followed by a summary discussion of State Policy that can support rural adoption of EBPs.
