This guide provides resources specific to screening for co-occurring disorders experienced by farmers, farmworkers and farm families in rural communities. Healthcare providers, behavioral health professionals, and social workers are facing increasing pressure to respond to a host of unmet substance use and mental health needs of rural communities. In response, with support from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the Mountain Plains ATTC and the Mountain Plains MHTTC have collaborated to release a resource guide to assist rural healthcare providers with screening and assessment of alcohol use disorder and depression.  The guide uses a case scenario to illustrate the most common barriers encountered in identifying co-occurring disorders and underscores the unique needs of rural communities that are home to agricultural producers.
