Yellowstone County Mental Health 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 guides helpful.

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

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 at (406) 443-7871, or email, info@namimt.org.
