Improving Mental Wellness for Rural Vermonters

Living in a rural setting can contribute to loneliness, isolation, and a lack of connection to others, and it can also be harder to find resources and supports during challenging times. All these factors can contribute to feelings of depression, sadness, and, in some cases, thoughts of suicide. Living in the country doesn’t mean having to be alone. To reduce suicide risk, individuals and organizations can support peer mental health networks, create places for connectedness, and improve access to mental health care.
