CRISIS RESPONSE: State grant dollars help create locally operated mental health services for Park County students
By Nolan Lister — Enterprise Staff Writer
Local state-licensed mental health center L’esprit is set to provide a mental health crises response team as well as early intervention and preventative care for Park County students dealing with mental health and substance abuse issues, thanks to a block grant through Montana’s Department of Public Health and Human Services.
The program, which goes into effect this academic year, received about $30,000 from the DPHHS Addictive and Mental Disorder Division. The grant is large enough to fund the program for one year, according to L’esprit CEO Chantelle Plauché.
L’esprit became eligible through the state of Montana to offer a Substance Use Recovery Program (SURP). This program has a wide variety of services which include case management, counseling, evaluations, ACT classes, group therapy, peer support, drug testing and MIP classes. The goal of this program is to help the community of Livingston fight against all types of drug addictions.
L’esprit is now licensed through the state of Montana to offer Adult Day Treatment after the services offered by the Livingston Mental Health Center shut down due to state-wide budget cuts, leaving more than 100 patients looking for care elsewhere. Dean Moore, who worked with the Adult Day Treatment patients in the previous program, has made the move to L’esprit and will continue to work with them in the L’esprit Adult Day Treatment program.
