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.
