Who We Are
Mental Health America of Montana (MHA of MT) is a recognized 501(c) (3) non-profit by the state of Montana and the Federal government. MHA of MT was started in 1948 when a group of Montanans concerned about mental health got together to form an advocacy and education organization. We maintain a warmline to support individuals in mental health recovery and more recently, we started a Youth Connection Line: http://www.montanayouthconnectionline.org
MHA of MT is a statewide organization with five affiliate chapters located in Great Falls, Yellowstone County, Daniels County, Sheridan County, and Stillwater/Sweet Grass Counties.
MHA of MT is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of concerned citizens across Montana. Our board members are persons with diverse backgrounds, mental health consumers, and family members of mental health consumers.
Our core program areas include annual children and rural/frontier strategy conferences, community education, a mental health Warmline staffed with trained mental health consumers, PRISM project (Prevent and Reduce the Incidence of Suicide in Montana), facilitation of the Montana Mental Health Legislative Caucus, Youth Crisis Diversion project in northeastern Montana, and development of mental health peer solutions.
