Urgent one-time appointments

When a student’s needs are pressing and it is not advisable to wait for a regular individual counseling appointment or initial consultation appointment, we will schedule you for a single-session appointment with the counselor who is on-call for crisis appointments.  These are scheduled typically the same day or in some situations, the next day, and are available M-F, between 8am and noon and 1pm and 5pm. Please call 406-243-4712 to inquire about these types of appointments or if you’re unable to get through, you can call the Medical Front Desk at 406-243-4330 and let them know you need a Crisis Counseling appointment.  

After business hours, please call the Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).  If you prefer to text, contact the National Crisis Text line: text MT to 741-741.  Call 911 for emergencies or visit the Emergency Room at St. Patrick Hospital or Community Medical Center.
