Rural Mental & Behavioral Health Alliance

The Rural Mental & Behavioral Health Alliance (RMBHA) is a partnership between Healthy Rural California, Stanford University and UC Davis School of Medicine to expand capacity for underserved communities in Northern California. Resident and faculty of all 3 organizations will connect Tele-Psychiatry services with tribal communities primarily. The Stanford University ECHO Program is the genesis of this idea. RMBHA was launched in January 2023 so stay tuned for more details. Contact Kristy Bird MaKieve, CEO, at with partnership ideas.
