Integrating Behavioral Health and Primary Care in Rural America


Mental health care shortages are on the rise and rural Americans are bearing the brunt of the problem. More than 60% of nonmetropolitan counties don’t have a psychiatrist, and almost half don’t have a psychologist. The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC)'s new report provides a pathway to integrated primary care and behavioral health services in rural areas, giving patients easier access to care, improved health outcomes, and even cost savings. 

Join the BPC for a virtual panel featuring rural providers and practitioners and learn more about how we can overcome the challenges facing rural America and deliver better care for all.
