The goal of the Appalachian Interactive Map (AIM) Project is to increase the use of local, state and national-relevant data to guide community and practice-based research and research translation to inform policy and practice. The AIM project is an interactive data platform to allow community organizations, clinics, policy makers, researchers, and public and private funding agencies to access multiple levels of data that can “zoom” from a specified Appalachian region down to states and counties.

Adapting an Evidence-Based Intervention for Rural Women with Depression
Prevalence of depression among rural women is nearly 4 times the national average. Depression prevalence is particularly high in Central Appalachia while limited services and social barriers restrict treatment access. To meet these needs, we identified Wellness Recovery Action Planning (WRAP), an evidence-based recovery-oriented self-management program to augment treatment-as-usual.
