North Dakota Behavioral Health Stakeholders

The Center for Rural Health hosts information from the North Dakota Behavioral Health Stakeholders group as a service, to help support the group's work in addressing this key health need.

The purpose of the North Dakota Behavioral Health Stakeholders group is to build stronger behavior health services in North Dakota. This group consists of over 100 members representing many different organizations. The group convened in the fall of 2013 with the purpose of discussing emerging behavioral health challenges.

What We Do:

The North Dakota Behavioral Health Stakeholders group works to address unmet needs in behavioral health in North Dakota. Using a Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) template of the components of a comprehensive system of behavioral healthcare, the group has identified needs in North Dakota and is working on solutions to meet those needs. Types of behavior health services addressed by this group include adult mental health, children's mental health, substance abuse, and workforce development.
