Fergus County Mental Illness Resource Guide


NAMI Montana developed these Mental Illness County Resource Guides as a general tool for people who live with serious mental illness and their families. We hope that you find the guide helpful.

We do our best to keep the guides up to date, but we need your help with the process. Please let us know if one of the contacts. in your county is invalid or if there is another resource we should include.  You can reach us as (406) 443-7871, or email, colleen@namimt.org.

​If you are in a severe life-threatening crisis, please call 911 or otherwise contact your local law enforcement and emergency medical services.
