With a shared vision, the two companies are working together to expand access to mental health services in Montana and beyond
DALLAS, Nov. 22, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Turnwell Mental Health Network and Montana Psychiatry & Brain Health Center (“Montana Psychiatry”), a leading provider of mental health services, today announced it has entered into a growth partnership. With this partnership, they plan to expand local access to affordable, state-of-the-art, physician-directed treatment with outpatient mental health clinics, starting with a new clinic in Bozeman, MT, which is expected to open in early December 2022.
Montana Psychiatry provides quality and affordable outpatient care through state-of-the-art treatments and interventions including pharmacotherapy, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), IV ketamine, Spravato, and psychotherapy. Montana Psychiatry accepts Medicare, Montana Medicaid, and select commercial insurance plans to ensure cost is not an impediment to treatment. dr Erin Amato, who is board-certified in General Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, is Medical Director of Montana Psychiatry. dr Amato has an extensive and distinguished background in traditional psychiatry and functional and interventional treatments.
“We are proud to partner with Montana Psychiatry, Dr. Amato and the experienced team at Billings,” said Davis Wedgworth, VP of Growth at Turnwell Mental Health Network. “The options for treating mental illness were limited, resulting in many people having to travel long distances to seek care. Our goal in partnering with Montana Psychiatry is to change that by enabling more Montana communities to access transformative treatment locally,” added Wedgworth.
According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, suicide is one of the leading causes of death in the United States and has been increasing in almost every state over time. Montana has one of the highest suicide rates in the country and access to quality mental health services is often limited, especially in rural areas. Executives from Montana Psychiatry and Turnwell Mental Health Network say they can be part of the solution as there is a significant need for quality treatment providers across the state.
dr Amato said, “Montana Psychiatry is committed to providing state-of-the-art, exemplary mental health services to patients throughout the region. This partnership with Turnwell Mental Health will accelerate our goal of expanding access to life-saving mental health care and breaking down barriers that prevent people from getting the treatments they need to get and stay healthy.
