BHECN Panhandle Annual Conference Archive

BHECN Panhandle Annual Conference (originally titled Rural Behavioral Health Provider Support Conference) is held annually to provide rural behavioral health providers support and networking opportunities.

The majority of the state of Nebraska is considered a shortage area for behavioral health providers. Research indicates this problem is furthered by difficulties with recruitment and retention of providers in our most isolated areas. The BHECN Panhandle Annual Conference is intended to develop support systems for providers in rural practice, in order to increase our ability to retain providers in these most needed areas.
