The St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation believes that investments in the treatment of underlying mental health issues, particularly for those with limited or no resources, is crucial to the health of our community as a whole. Consequently, the Foundation, in partnership with the St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center, recently funded the startup costs of developing an outpatient mental health clinic and a well-coordinated mental health network consisting of a full-time psychiatrist, Dr. Tim Stoddard, and a licensed social worker, Gay Miremont.
The new St. Luke’s Clinic – Mental Health Services is now open and accepting appointments. Mental Health Services is located on the second floor of the Hailey Clinic and provides access to affordable mental health services in our region.
For the health of our community, it’s important to recognize that depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions are treatable and can improve with professional support and guidance. Help for any mental health issue should be encouraged, and many resources are available in and around our community.
Fortunately, there are multiple resources available within our community to help us deal with stress and mental health conditions. The Center for Community Health, with support from the St. Luke’s Wood River Foundation, has recently published Get Help! a mental health resource guide for the Wood River Valley, which is available in English and Spanish.
