Have you ever felt stuck, not knowing which direction to take or even if there is one to take? Have you ever felt like you want–more than anything–to get out of this hole you’re in, but you have no idea how to do it on your own? 

High Country Behavioral Health can help. According to its website, High Country Behavioral Health’s mission is “to study, live, and teach those principles and practices that help others to build healthy relationships, achieve personal goals, manage stress, regulate emotions, and find meaning and purpose in their lives.” 

Liz Miller, Clinical Director for the Afton location, said High Country Behavioral Health has made a huge impact on clients they serve. 

“For a few people, [our care] has been big. However, a lot of people still don’t know we are here,” Miller said. “Anyone can walk in and receive any kind of service and can ask any questions they may have.” 

Miller said its High Country Behavioral Health’s hope to branch out and meet more people, so they can provide quality mental health care to those who need it. 

“[Our services] apply to absolutely anybody. Even if you’re mentally healthy, you may have a time in your year where you need insight or a relationship you need help with,” Miller said. “We have a lot of information at our fingertips that can help.” 

High Country Behavioral Health offers several services and programs to help meet your needs. According to its website, some of those services include individual therapy, marriage and family therapy, mental health, consultation, anger management programs, and more. 

Miller said she’s loved her job and has exponentially learned techniques and information that is helpful for mental health and more since working with High Country Behavioral Health. 

“There’s a lot you get out of working here,” she said. “I really enjoy working with clients one on one, which is probably the piece you will love the most no matter the position you have here.” 

Miller said you can walk in any time during High Country’s office hours and receive some kind of help. You are also welcome to give them a call or visit their website.
