Rural healthcare received some attention at the West Ottertail Crop and Forage Show in Fergus Falls. West Central Initiative marketing coordinator Rick Schara says mental health care is the focus. “The challenge for a lot of us is how do you reach out for help? It’s tough for people to make that call or say I could use some help.” Schara expects to see continued focus on mental health for rural communities. “Our issue is how does small town leadership help citizens? We are going to do some better education in the next year on that.”
