Montana Mental Health Access Fund
The Montana Mental Health Access Fund will leverage technology and other resources to increase access to mental health services to every corner of Montana.
The Montana Mental Health Access Fund was established at MCF by Frontier Psychiatry, a Montana-based telepsychiatry service, through a $150,000 grant from AMB West Philanthropies. The fund was created to help increase access to mental health services across Montana, with a particular focus on rural and tribal communities.
It supports innovative ideas for improving mental health and well-being in Montana, including leveraging technology and other resources to provide mental health services in even the hardest to reach areas and populations. The goal of the fund is to help make mental health services available to all Montanans by 2025.
Additional contributions to the fund will further the impact of the fund to provide grant support to all Montana communities that lack access to psychiatric care.
Support Increased Access to Mental Health Services in Montana
Mental Health in Montana
Montana has one of the highest suicide rates in the Country while accessing mental health services across the State remains a challenge for many. Historically, there has been a lack of mental health services, especially in remote, rural areas, as well as tribal communities. Supporting a health system that focuses on mental health and provides access to prevention, early intervention, treatment, and recovery services is essential to improving the health of all Montanans.
