In this episode of the MDedge Psychcast, we revisit an interview that Lorenzo Norris, MD, MDedge Psychiatry editor in chief, conducted earlier this year by phone with two psychiatrists working in New Mexico.
Dr. Norris spoke with Caroline Bonham, MD, and Avi Kriechman, MD, about enhancing resilience in rural communities. Dr. Bonham is vice chair in the department of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque. Dr. Kriechman is assistant professor in that department, and a pediatrician who works on youth suicide prevention and school mental health.
