Mental health crises can come up without warning, and they can be life-threatening. If you feel stuck, helpless, worthless or anxious to the point where you may become a threat to yourself or others, it’s time to get help. It’s a scary place to find yourself, but there’s no shame in reaching out for support. Fortunately, there are many resources available in Montana, both virtually and in person.
If you are concerned for your or someone else’s safety, call 911. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is also an emergency resource to call when you need. If you prefer to communicate via text, you can text MT to 741-741 for help on the text crisis line.
There are also other local resources to find the help you need in your Montana community. Reach out to any of these resources any time and start believing in feeling better.
When you call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline from anywhere in Montana, it automatically routes the call to the Help Center in Bozeman or Voices of Hope in Great Falls, whichever is closer. The Help Center offers trained counselors on their 24-hour crisis line and their 24-hour sexual assault line. Even if you just need someone to talk to or need help finding other resources, you can call for help. Reach them at 406-586-3333.
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a mental toll on many. The state of Montana is offering a local crisis line through February 15, 2022 to help people cope. Get a hold of crisis counselors with Montana Crisis Recovery every day from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. at 1-877-503-0833.
Though the Montana Warm Line is not a crisis line, it can provide support for those struggling with their mental health. This phone line connects those suffering with mental illness to other people in recovery to lift each other up and offer mutual support. It’s a way to get someone on the phone, fast, and work through what you’re feeling. Reach them at 1-877-688-3377.
If you’re ready to get help but not in crisis, reaching out to your local community healthcare clinic is a great place to start. Community Health Partners (CHP) has behavioral health clinics in Bozeman, Belgrade, Livingston and West Yellowstone, ready to get you on the path to recovery. CHP offers affordable services on a sliding fee scale with local clinics and virtual appointments so you can access help easily.
