Implications of health care reform for rural mental health services


Journal Article

Efforts toward health care reform for people with mental illness in rural America must take into consideration the unique characteristics of these areas.

Special incentives are necessary to address the needs of rural populations. © 1995 Human Sciences Press, Inc.
