Summary:
Argues that although psychologists are often the most highly trained mental health providers in rural areas, their numbers are often small. Learning to work with other mental health providers in a community context presents an opportunity for them to increase the availability of mental health and substance abuse services. Interdisciplinary approaches to the delivery of mental health and substance abuse services are an important way that the existing providers in rural areas can ensure that rural residents have access to these services. The American Psychological Association Rural Health Task Force, chaired by Michael Enright, PhD, conceived of the project described in this report in response to the perceived need for psychologists working in rural areas to maximinze their effectiveness in delivering mental health and substance abuse services.
