Recipients should be aware that Behavioral Health maintains a 24 hour on-call mental health therapist who is available for emergency care and is reachable by calling 406-675-4700 and stating that you need to talk to Mental Health. Also, Behavioral Health staff advise any recipient(s) to call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room in the case of any suicidal emergency.
