Behavioral Health Services in Jackson Hole

Treatment for Mood Disorders, Substance Abuse & More

Behavioral health issues affect millions of people every year and too often they go undiagnosed because people do not realize their condition can benefit from medical assistance. Depression and anxiety are something no one should have to struggle with on a daily basis. At St. John’s Health, we provide resources to patients and families dealing with mental and behavioral health concerns. We believe in the value of personalized care that is tailored to the specific needs of each and every patient.

Mental Health resource line

We understand that seeking help can feel overwhelming, and you may not know where to turn. St. John’s maintains a mental health resource telephone line, which is available to anyone, including those struggling with issues from substance abuse to family members concerned about a loved one. When calling or texting, you will be connected to a licensed mental health professional that will assist you in finding services in the community that can help support you or your family’s needs.

Call or text 307.203.7880 to be connected with a licensed mental health professional at St. John’s. This service is available Monday–Friday from 8 am–4 pm. Messages left on the resource line will be returned within 24 hours.

For help with a mental health crisis, contact the Jackson Hole Community Counseling Center’s 24/7 crisis line at 307.733.2046. In an emergency, call 911.

Defining Mental Disorders

Diagnosing mental and behavioral disorders requires an extremely skilled medical eye. No physician wants to diagnose a patient with a medical condition when they are experiencing a normal, temporary bout of depression or anxiety. Unfortunately, many patients stop seeing the doctor about their mental health concerns after they have been told not to worry about them. It is important that you emphasize the intensity of your condition and how long it has been going on for. Doctors need to know that your problem is chronic and reoccurring in order to make an accurate diagnosis.

Mental conditions that can benefit from medical treatment include:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Eating disorders
  • Chemical dependency
  • Substance abuse and addiction
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Autism and other behavioral disorders

Treatment

Our physicians know what questions to ask and what factors to consider when diagnosing behavioral health conditions. Treatment may involve medication, and/or counseling.. The physicians will then connect you with our behavioral health providers to provide counseling services or connect you to community resources, if appropriate. If you find yourself hospitalized, for any reason, our case management department can also assist in connecting patients and their families to crisis counseling support groups, community resources that can benefit your mental health and well-being.
