Advocating for the behavioral health needs for our friends and neighbors across Montana is tireless work that often times happens in the shadows, away from public view, and is never finished. As a member-based organization, we are proud of the accomplishments we have made, and for the successes we have found by working together.

While the biggest “thank you” we will ever need to receive is simply seeing a neighbor achieve their goals, or assisting a community to help their people, every once in a while it feels good to receive a pat on the back. Thank you to everyone who has gone out of their way to provide BHAM with some positive feedback and encouragement. It means the world to us.
