The staff at Providence Medical Group's Urgent Mental Health Clinic are guided by the values of respect, dignity and compassion. We are here to provide support and care to adolescents or adults who are struggling with life events, experiencing extreme mood swings, constantly feeling sad or hopeless, or living with a known mental illness.

Assessments for short-term mental health care are provided as soon as possible. If you need our care – or know someone who does – please call 406-327-3034.

The Urgent Mental Health Clinic is the only dedicated advanced-access mental health clinic in Western Montana and offers services to anyone, regardless of ability to pay.

Psychiatrists and medical staff at the Urgent Mental Health Clinic provide a psychiatric diagnostic interview examination for each new patient. Follow-up services include, but are not limited to:

  • Outpatient psychiatry
  • Medication management
  • Outpatient psychotherapy
  • Referrals to specialists
  • Referrals for long-term mental health care

Providence provides short-term, urgent mental health care for crisis management and stabilization. We also offer a temporary bridge to community-based mental health services. We focus on short-term treatment and stabilization of patients when they are discharged from the hospital, emergency department or for those who need care prior to establishing a full-time psychiatrist.

Crisis management and stabilization includes the following:

  • Psychotherapy - the most well-known type of therapy, involves one-on-one communication between you and your doctor or group psychotherapy involving families.
  • Medication management - Our psychiatric nurse practitioners offer therapy and psychiatric medication management to help you get the right medication at the right time. We understand that everyone is unique and medications affect everyone differently. We focus on you, as an individual, to help manage your medications.
  • Outpatient psychiatry
  • Referrals to specialists
  • Referrals for long-term mental health care

You won’t be turned away based on your ability to pay.

Your first visit should take about 60 minutes. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to check in.

If you’re running late, please call us. We might need to reschedule your appointment to accommodate other patients.

Please provide at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule. That makes it easier for us to fit another patient into your original time slot. And, that helps shorten the wait time for future appointments. For repeated no-show appointments, a patient may be double-booked for future appointments in order to maintain quick scheduling access for all patients.
