Mental Health Services in Jackson Hole

Treatment for Mood Disorders, Substance Abuse & More

Mental 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.

Call the St. John's Mental Health Resource Line at 307.203.7880 to be connected with a licensed clinical social worker at St. John’s.

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 mental health conditions. Treatment may involve medication, counseling, and therapy. Through our social services department, patients and their families can access crisis counseling, group therapy, and support groups that can benefit their mental health care.
