Crisis can significantly impact one's mental health. Whether we already experience mental health challenges or not, increased stress, isolation, and uncertainty can challenge our ways of coping. We are fortunate to have so many mental health resources available to us in Blaine County.
Mental Health Agencies as well as many experienced mental health practitioners in our community are available to help individuals. We list organizations below, not individual practitioners, however, many of the resources listed below will be able to help refer you to individual, one-on-one counseling, if this is what you are seeking. This list will grow over time.
Reaching out for support, anytime, is a sign of strength. You are surrounded by so many willing to support you, your family, your friends, and your loved ones during this time.
St. Luke’s Center for Community Health partners with organizations and agencies in our community and supports the efforts of Blaine County Recovery. We serve the community through bilingual, comprehensive and coordinated health and wellness prevention services and can assist you in navigating through resources. If you need help deciding which resources are best for you, please call us at 208-727-8733.
