Turnwell Mental Health Network and Montana Psychiatry & Brain Health Center (“Montana Psychiatry”), a leading provider of psychiatric services, announced today that they have finalized a growth partnership. With this partnership, they plan to expand local access to affordable, cutting-edge, physician-led treatment with outpatient mental health treatment clinics, starting with a new clinic in Bozeman, MT, that is on-track to open in early December 2022.

Montana Psychiatry provides high-quality and affordable outpatient care through cutting-edge 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 a barrier to treatment. Dr. Erin Amato, who is double-board certified in General Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, is the 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 accomplished team in Billings,” said Davis Wedgworth, VP of Growth at Turnwell Mental Health Network. “Options for mental health treatment have been limited causing many people to have to travel long distances for care. Our goal in the partnership with Montana Psychiatry is to change that by bringing local access to transformative treatment to more communities in Montana,” Wedgworth added.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, suicide is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. and has increased in almost every state over time. Montana has one of the highest suicide rates in the nation and access to quality mental health services is often limited, especially in rural areas. Leaders from Montana Psychiatry and Turnwell Mental Health Network say they can be part of the solution as there is a considerable need for high-quality treatment providers across the state.

Dr. Amato said, “Montana Psychiatry is committed to providing cutting-edge, exemplary mental health services to patients across 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 obtaining the treatments they need to get and stay well. We are thrilled that more patients will be able to access the services they need closer to home.”
