Mental Health Resources
Bozeman and National Resources for Mental Health
May is National Mental Health Month, and it couldn’t come at a better time. With work, family, and kid life moving full speed ahead, the stress and tensions of the day often add up quickly. We easily get burnt out and often don’t know where to turn for help. Below are national and Bozeman mental health resources available in the community. I hope these websites offer you some help, inspiration or motivation to put your mental health in the forefront of life.
National Organizations for Mental Health Resources
Mental Health America is a non-profit organization “dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and to promoting the overall mental health of all.” Their Tools 2 Thrive resource page offers tips, journal pages, and conversation starters to help you support the mental health of you and your friends and family.
The Centers for Disease Control offers bite-sized tips for coping with stress, specifically in times of a sudden event or emergency. Their straightforward list gives advice for any person, including teens, parents, and school personnel.
Bozeman Mental Health Resources
Bozeman Health, the organization over Deaconess Hospital and clinics in the Bozeman area, provides some wonderful articles on their Stress and Anxiety page. If you’re interested in learning more about the impact of stress on your health, want more information on stress and anxiety, or need tips for soothing stress, this is a great page to check out.
For people who live with mental illness or their families, the National Alliance on Mental Illness has local resource pages for communities across America, including Bozeman and Gallatin County. This page includes phone numbers for mental health and addiction services, housing and other medical and financial, legal, and transportation assistance. The number of people and organizations listed on this page is massive! It would be a great option to bookmark if you think you might find it useful!
