According to Mental Health America, among the states with the most prevalence of mental illness is Montana, coming in at 46th place. The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) reports on its website that one out of every ten state residents reports mental distress. While the state does boast comparatively low numbers of drug overdose deaths annually, hundreds of overdoses still occur every year in Montana, many of them fatal. We want to help.
