Bozeman Mental Health Resource Guide

As GigWorx is a proud member of the Gallatin Valley Human Resources Association (GVHRA), a subsidiary of Society for HR Management (SHRM), we wanted to bring attention to the work of the Mental Health and Social Services Resource Guide curated by the Gallatin County Mental Health Local Advisory Council.

This guide serves as a comprehensive resource for individuals seeking support, information, and guidance in the realm of mental health and social services.

Our goal was to make this guide easily accessible online, providing gig workers with valuable resources and links to their respective websites. We genuinely care about the well-being of not only our gigworkers, but anyone in the Gallatin Valley. Please take care of yourself!
