The Rural Health Advisory Committee (RHAC) advises the Commissioner of Health and leaders in other state agencies on rural health issues. RHAC provides a systematic and cohesive approach toward rural health issues and planning by choosing current issues to focus on. This year, RHAC has chosen to study mental health crisis response in Minnesota. Join members of RHAC and the rural Crisis Response Work Group. Contribute your perspective on crisis response in rural Minnesota and what is needed to sustain it. The RHAC work group will use this input as it develops recommendations for policymakers in 2019-2020. Please come to this facilitated open comment session to provide your input on this important topic.
