This webinar provides an overview of the request for applications for NASHP’s upcoming State Policy Institute on Rural Mental Health Crisis Services, which will help states strengthen policies and strategies that support development, coordination, and delivery of mental health crisis services in rural areas. Participants also receive information to help them consider their options for developing state mental health crisis services policy vis-a-vis a presentation by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
