Center for Rural Health Partners with the National Institute of Mental Health

Thu, 2015-05-28 11:16

The Center for Rural Health (CRH) at the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences has been selected as the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Outreach Partner for 2015 for the state of North Dakota. The CRH joins a nationwide network of 55 mental health organizations committed to disseminating science-based information from NIMH about the causes, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental disorders, and educating the public about the importance of research and the opportunities to participate in studies.

For over a decade, NIMH has supported organizations from every state, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico through the Outreach Partnership Program to increase the public’s awareness about the importance of mental health to overall health as well as the recognition that mental disorders are brain-based disorders, and that research is the way forward to understanding how best to treat, prevent, and ultimately cure mental illness.

The Center for Rural Health has been the designated Outreach Partner for the NIMH since 2010. Through this renewed partnership, the CRH will provide publications on various mental health topics to the general public and to organizations that request them, such as public health units, research groups, and clinics. For more information on North Dakota’s partnership, contact Nikki Massmann at the Center for Rural Health, 701-777-4205 or or nicole.massmann@med.UND.edu.

The National Institute of Mental Health is one of 27 components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Federal government's principal biomedical and behavioral research agency. NIH is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Civilian Ambassadors Forge Links between Grand Forks AFB, Community

Defense Communities 360

May 26, 2015

A group of civilian ambassadors appointed by the wing commander of Grand Forks Air Force Base has been staying busy, keeping the Grand Forks community in eastern North Dakota up to date about activities at the installation, organizing military appreciation day events and traveling to Washington to meet with Pentagon officials.

“Having a close relationship between the community and the base is very important. We always want the community to know what we’re doing out here, so we’re not a mystery,” said Wing Commander Col. Paul Bauman, who has been at the installation for about two years.

The ambassadors are briefed on Air Force and air base activities during at least one event annually, and are invited to attend events planned for visiting high-ranking military leaders and other important visitors, reported the Grand Forks Herald. There currently are eight base ambassadors.

The base ambassador program is an outgrowth of the Grand Forks-East Grand Forks Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee, and the ambassadors typically work with the committee on military appreciation day events. But Bauman drew a distinction with the community support groups that are active in most defense communities.

“It’s unique,” he said. “One of the things that’s been interesting is feeling the closeness of the community to the base.”

The tight connection between the installation and the community likely stems from the series of crises the two have been forced to cope with, including earlier BRAC rounds when the base was targeted for closure and the devastating flooding of the Red River in 1997.

“A lot of that has forged close ties between the base and the community,” Bauman said. “Not every community has gone through that degree of trauma, so that adds to the uniqueness.”
