The majority of the state 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 in our most isolated areas. The Rural Provider Support Network 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.
This conference will provide information for rural mental health providers on a variety of relevant topics: (complete schedule coming soon). There will also be opportunities to get to know other nearby providers and discussion of ways to network effectively.
This program is co-sponsored by the Behavioral Health Education Center of Nebraska (BHECN) and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Department of Psychology. The UNL Department of Psychology is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. The department maintains responsibility for this program and its content. Participants attending this program can receive 2 CEs.
