Psychiatric Outpatient Services
Providence Psychiatry is one of just a few clinics in Western Montana that provides outpatient psychiatric services – and that is accepting new patients. Outpatient services are available for adolescents and adults who need help with psychological distress due to life crisis, a mood disorder or mental illness.
Our doctors take an individual approach to you and your situation. They’ll work with you to create a treatment plan you are comfortable following. They will help ease your way through your crisis. Your psychiatrist may recommend one or more of the following treatments during your therapy:
- Psychological tests to help determine behavior or personality traits
- Psychopharmacologic treatment for medication management or intervention
- Psychotherapy, the most well-known type of therapy, which involves one-on-one communication between you and your doctor or group psychotherapy involving couples or families
Everyone is unique and medications affect everyone differently. Our psychiatrists offer therapy and psychiatric medication management to help you get the right medication at the right time.
Preparing for Your Visit
You won’t be turned away based on your ability to pay.
If you receive a new patient packet in the mail prior to your first appointment, please fill out the enclosed forms before you arrive.
Your first visit should take about 90 minutes. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to check in.
If you’re running late, please call (406) 327-3362. We might need to reschedule your appointment to accommodate other patients.
Please provide at least 24 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule. That makes it easier for us to fit another patient into your original time slot. And, that helps shorten the wait time for future appointments. For repeated no-show appointments, a patient may be double-booked for future appointments in order to maintain quick scheduling access for all patients.
