This is the first year a conference has been held which focuses specifically on the unique challenges faced by mental health care providers in rural areas. Conference organizers believe that rural communities must employ unique solutions to these unique challenges.
The Rural Mental Health Conference aims to:
Celebrate programs being implemented in rural areas.
Share ideas/practices and build capacity of rural health care providers.
Bring delegates from across the province to Brooks to showcase our programs/facilities.
Raise the profile and awareness of rural mental health and form relationships with other communities to advance the practice.
