Mental Health Statistics for Missoula

The suicide crisis in Missoula and Missoula County is receding. The number of annual suicides in Missoula County dropped from 34 to 28 between 2016 and 2018. In that same period, the number of calls to suicide prevention hotlines increased from 500 to 1,000. The increase in help-seeking behaviors and the decrease in completed suicides suggests that more Missoula residents are seeking and receiving help before ending their lives.

However, mental health access is still a concern for some Missoula residents. In a survey of local behavioral health providers, 31% listed finances as the biggest barrier to mental health treatment. In Missoula city, one in ten residents lack health insurance, and one in five live in poverty. Yet the ratio of mental health care providers in Missoula County (1 provider per 270 residents) is much better than average. These data suggest the problem is often not availability of care, but affordability.
