Community Resources

HealthWest has staff available to present to agencies and groups about our services and/or specialty mental health/developmental disability topics. It is important to us to raise awareness about behavioral health in order to reduce stigma and increase the number of people who reach out for needed help. Some of the topics we can speak to:



  • HealthWest services, eligibility, & referral
  • Building a Trauma Informed Community
  • Specific diagnosis or populations (such as youth mental health, Seasonal Affective Disorder, working with individuals with schizophrenia, etc.)



Reach out to if you are interested in scheduling one of our staff to come speak with your agency or group.
