Montana's Psychiatry Leaders

The Big Sky Regional Council of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is Montana's professional organization of child and adolescent psychiatrists.

It’s amazing what we can do when we come together.

'reaching out to help our neighbors'

our history

A NOTE FROM the Conference Chairman

Effective Advocacy and support

NAMI Montana supports, educates, and advocates for Montanans with severe mental illnesses and their families.

Saving Lives

AFSP Montana works to educate about suicide prevention, focus on effective legislation and support those who have lost a loved one or have lived experience.

Additional sponsors

When Montana has been in the top five states with the highest suicide rate for the past four decades, we will only meet with success with an organized, unified effort that draws together concerned Montanans who pool their strengths, expertise and time in 'reaching out to help our neighbors' on this important issue.


Thanks for the support that’s made it all possible!
