45th Annual National Association for
Rural Mental Health Conference

La Fonda on the Plaza
Santa Fe, New Mexico

August 26-29, 2019

“From Surviving to Thriving: Embracing Connections”

The National Association for Rural Mental Health (NARMH) Annual Conference is the premier interdisciplinary mental health event for rural families and peers, community members, clinicians, researchers, administrators and policy professionals. Now in its 45th year, the NARMH Annual Conference provides a collaborative environment for all participants across professions to learn and network on a myriad of vital issues concerning mental health practice, research, policy and advocacy in rural and remote populations.

NARMH “rode the winds of change” in Santa Fe in 2002, and now we return in 2019 to see what we have learned, what has changed, and where we are headed. We want to learn from communities who have gone from surviving to thriving and how that impact is maintained and enhanced. We want to get to know each other and have fun together.

There is no better place to do that then the City Different, Santa Fe, New Mexico
