The 4th annual Rural 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 recruiting and retaining providers to our most isolated areas. The Rural Provider Support Network Conference is intended to develop support systems for providers in rural practice to increase our ability to retain providers in these most needed areas.
The fourth annual conference, held live online May 14th, provided information for rural mental health providers on a variety of relevant topics: play therapy as a means for addressing trauma in children; roles and responsibilities of the team when caring for those impacted by trauma; and postvention as prevention for suicide.
In the past, this conference has been offered in-person in the panhandle of Nebraska, but we have again adapted this year’s conference to accommodate social distancing and are offering it in an online format with enduring credits.
