Thank you all for helping me see a stronger person in myself.

I feel GMHC has helped me in many ways. I always get great service and I feel the staff cares for my needs and feelings. Thank you! Keep up the good work!

Two months ago, our daughter, diagnosed with bi polar and clinically depressed, became so despondent at home (even to the point of verbally expressing serious thoughts of suicide) that we felt it necessary to get her immediate help. She got that help at our Hope House. She was professionally evaluated and her medications were changed on the spot. She stayed at the Hope House for the maximum time allowed, then came home. Whatever treatment she received at the Hope House was exactly what was needed. Our daughter is doing much better and remains on the medications she was prescribed by Hope House professionals. For us, our Hope House was a Godsend.

Our family was in a crisis situation with our son about six weeks ago. Starting with Mental Health Crisis Intervention trained officers, to the Bozeman Deaconess Hospital Emergency Room, to evaluation by Mental Health Professional members of the Crisis Response Team, to crisis care at the Hope House, to care at the Montana State Hospital, to continuing community treatment at the Gallatin Mental Health Center, and finally to the education and support provided by the NAMI Family to Family Course worked together seamlessly to prevent what would have most likely been a catastrophe. We are very ,very grateful for the help and guidance they have given us. Without the help we received for our son during this crisis time we would not be blessed to still have our son with us today! We will be forever grateful, and thank them for the continued support and education on mental illnesses that they are providing our family.

Just a note to whom it may concern. I have lived in the Dorothy Eck House since it first opened. I am so grateful for the opportunity to live in the Eck house. This has given me the ability to get back on my feet. I have been able to live in a nice studio and not be worried about being homeless. This is also close to the out patient facility which makes it convenient for me to meet with my therapist and case-manager who can help me maintain my mania and manage my money. The Eck house is a blessing to have. We are so fortunate to have such a place. I would recommend that the other mental health facilities follow Gallatin mental health’s lead.
