Rural Human Services

Partnerships

Rural Human Services (RHS) is a statewide effort. RHS embraces the Alaska Mental Health Board’s goal to have at least one trained rural human service provider employed in each of Alaska’s 171 villages. The program represents successful partnerships and collaborations in rural Alaska, with faculty from the University of Alaska, representatives from the Alaska Department of Health and Human Services, Alaska Native elders, Alaska Native Health Corporations, rural mental health centers, and the RHS Council who work closely together in an effort to best meet the needs of rural Alaskans. These are some of our many partners:
