About this event
Though the prevalence of mental health problems does not differ between rural and urban populations, mental health supports are less readily available in rural areas. In addition to this, the uptake of innovative approaches to mental health care has not been as consistent in rural areas as it has in metropolitan areas, exacerbating already wide differences in access and quality of care. Concerns about community confidentiality and related stigma for those seeking help also complicate the matter.
Join us for our June Rural Funders Group call as we explore innovative funder and nonprofit approaches to supporting the mental health needs of rural residents.
Philanthropy Northwest's Rural Funders Group series is a monthly opportunity for rural funders from across the country to discuss topics and learn best practices alongside peers who serve rural communities.
