Behavioral Health

Elevating Behavioral Health Community Workshop

In mid-2017, a grassroots effort to start a conversation about mental healthcare in our communities became an initiative to organize a Behavioral Health Symposium in Gallatin County in October 2017. A group of leaders from various organizations formed into a steering committee to guide the planning and fundraising for the October 10, 2017 symposium. The symposium, in part, resulted in five working groups with specific focus areas related to the symposium topics: Improving Access, Supporting Providers, Enhancing Coordination, Advancing Education and Awareness, and Ensuring Effective Crisis Intervention. These groups are finding solutions to problems or challenges associated with local mental healthcare.

Community Health Needs Assessment

This Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) is a systematic, data-driven approach to determining the health status, behaviors, and needs of residents in Gallatin, Madison, and Park counties, Montana. The assessment was conducted in collaboration with Professional Research Consultants on behalf of Bozeman Health, Community Health Partners, and the Gallatin City-County Health Department. There are significant findings related to behavioral health here that may be applicable for working groups.

2017 HRDC Needs Assessment

The HRDC Community Needs Assessment report includes a profile of each community detailed with current demographic data, survey participant data, and our customer data. It includes a summary of the survey results, the top needs that surfaced, and townhall discussion notes. Also, a survey tool and overall demographic data can be found in the appendix.
