Access, Resources, Poverty: The Challenges Of Rural Mental Health Care

Sep 13, 2018

Rural areas of the state face heightened challenges when it comes to mental health and mental health care: from spread-out populations to poverty, stigma and limited resources. We're talking about the strategies used by the designated agencies that provide care in these areas to increase access to care and help the people who need it most. 

We're joined by Margaret Joyal, director of counseling and psychological services at Washington County Mental Health Services.

And by Blaine Lachance, director of adult mental health services at Northeast Kingdom Human Services.
