Riverwalk Crisis Receiving Center

With vision, dedication and generosity from our partners at Providence Well Being Trust, Missoula County ARPA funds, Missoula County Mental Health Mill, the MT DPHHS Crisis Diversion Grant and the blood, sweat, and tears of the community at Western Montana Mental Health Center, Missoula now has a safe, welcoming, trauma informed environment for individuals 18 and older, who need a place to go when they are experiencing a behavioral or mental health crisis. The center is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Guests of the center can experience support offered by a team of healthcare professionals who support necessary care and connect them to needed community resources. Riverwalk can serve up to 16 individuals in an open design environment facilitating continuous observation. Gues can stay in the facility for up to 23 hours and 59 minutes. Riverwalk also provides a space for family members to meet with the guest, as well as space for cultural and spiritual practices. This approach leads to better patient outcomes with lower cost than an emergency department for circumstances not requiring intensive treatment.

At Western, we are bursting with joy over this hard-won community accomplishment, and we are eager to support your mental health and addiction recovery needs. Riverwalk Crisis Receiving Center IS the Western Way!
