The author reviews the literature on several aspects of psychiatric practice in a rural community.
Unique characteristics of rural life are first presented.
The many complexities of ethical psychiatric practice and boundary and self-disclosure issues are also reviewed.
Finally, a proposal is offered for the use of modified informed consent documents, boundaries explanation documents, and other tools that might allow psychiatrists and other mental health professionals to more effectively deal with the unique and frequently difficult areas of rural practice.
