Behavioral Health Innovations and Research


The Behavioral Health Innovations and Research (BHIR) group seeks to improve behavioral health in rural West Texas through innovative, collaborative, and community-driven scholarship which provides a foundation for developing new service delivery approaches to meeting rural residents' behavioral health needs.

The size, scope, and diversity of West Texas demands research that is both innovative and adaptive. The charge of the Institute’s Rural Health Research Group is to promote and conduct the kind of scholarly work that meets this demand. While the BHIR has experienced much growth and success in the last few years, its focus is trained on the future. Building on the established research platform to develop creative behavioral health service delivery approaches, the F. Marie Institute for Rural and Community Health is positioned to become well-known as a respected and reliable source of rural health scholarship and service.
