Rural Health Coordinators
The Rural Health Coordinators (RHCs) are a grassroots network of psychologists who work at the state, provincial, or territorial level to promote mental health services for rural and frontier populations. The RHCs are appointed by the state, provincial, or territorial psychological association (SPTA) and directed by the American Psychological Association’s Committee on Rural Health (CRH). The RHCs are not CRH members; they are part of the state, province, and territory-wide network of psychologists that work in conjunction with CRH on rural issues. Some SPTAs may also provide direction for the activities of their RHC. The Rural Health Coordinators work to carry out CRH’s mission of improving rural healthcare through psychology and increasing psychologists’ awareness of rural perspectives and issues.
