Season Greetings from MSU Center for Mental Health Research & Recovery


MSU Center for Mental Health Research & Recovery



Season Greetings, Southeastern Montanans,

We want to reach out to our friends in Eastern Montana and thank you all for your help in sharing “the word” about the evidence-based mental health programs that we have been developing and then disseminating throughout Montana. While most of you know the programs, they are briefly described in the updated documents shown as Attachments I, II and III. We were also very pleased to see a thoughtful piece about the programs in the Miles City Star November 22 (see Attachment IV).

The holiday season is such a special time for all of us, our families, friends and the people with whom we work. But, as you all know, it is also a time that can create extra stress, anxiety and depression for some folks. So please remember that one can still enroll in Thrive for Montana (free enrollment has been extended to June 30, 2020) to enhance one’s own wellness and alleviate possible “holiday” blues (see Attachment I for enrollment information).

We here in Bozeman with Montana State University and One Montana wish to acknowledge and thank you for all the work you have done, are doing, and will continue to do in improving and nurturing the mental health of rural Eastern Montanans. No one has done more for rural Montanans than you have. And, we have the data to prove it!

Have a wonderful holiday and a very Happy New Year. We will continue to be there for you in 2020.
