The 3rd annual Rural Behavioral Health Provider Support Conference is now available as three enduring modules!

 

Most of Nebraska is considered a shortage area for behavioral health providers of all types. Particularly hit by this are our rural areas.

Research indicates that this problem is furthered by difficulties with recruitment and retention of providers to our most isolated areas. The Rural Provider Support Network 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.

The online modules include information for rural mental health providers on a variety of relevant topics: self-care and wellness, providing behavioral health services to the ag community, and ethics of telehealth.

In the past, this conference has been offered in-person in the panhandle of Nebraska, but we have adapted this year’s conference to the current situation and are offering it in an online format.
