Mental Health and Substance Use Co-Occurring Disorders Series
Join the Mountain Plains Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (Mountain Plains MHTTC) and the Mountain Plains Addiction Technology Transfer Center (Mountain Plains ATTC) for a five-part training series on skills and best practices for supporting individuals experiencing co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders.

Providers working in HHS Region 8 face unique challenges in leveraging resources to provide wrap-around comprehensive substance use and mental health care to individuals experiencing co-occurring disorders. Adding to these challenges, only 7.4% of individuals with co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders receive treatment for both disorders and approximately 55% are receiving no treatment at all (Priester, et al 2016). Additionally, access, availability, and affordability to behavioral health treatment is even more difficult when residing in rural areas.

This series will provide context to the challenges faced by providers working in rural and remote communities and explore skills and practices that can help support interventions for this population.
