About the Series

The pandemic has exacerbated the crisis in rural health care and mental health in America. To raise awareness, educate, reduce stigma, and change the national conversation, Remote Chance: Health Care in Rural America shares a portrait of the disparities in rural and frontier regions of the United States in care and mental health. From lack of services to isolation and ethnic inequities, the series presents facts and figures and short, digital-first films by award-winning filmmaker Elizabeth Arledge to shine a light on this crisis.

Support provided by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). Short films produced, directed, and written by Elizabeth Arledge/Gurney Street Films.
