Rural, frontier, and tribal communities are often excluded during the design of policies, research and programs at the federal and state levels. This lack of perspective can and has led to negative consequences in health systems, further exacerbating racial, economic and gender-based disparities for individuals and communities living with mental health and/or substance use challenges.
Adapting to telehealth services can pose unique challenges and opportunities for mental health and substance use services organizations working with adults and adolescents. Telehealth can be an effective tool in addressing health disparities in rural communities, including increased access to integrated specialty care. This webinar will address how structural urbanism exacerbates existing disparities and explore strategies to effectively utilize telehealth in integrated care to address health disparities within rural communities.
