"A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members.” - Mahatma GandhiThere is no dispute that a person’s strengths or weaknesses are a result of their health. With healthcare becoming one of the leading issues on the minds of Americans today, Montana Healthcare Foundation (MHCF) envisions a measurably healthier State through improving access, education, research, and public policy. MHCF is committed to uphold this promise to the residents of Montana and govern by the guiding principle that everyone benefits from better health.
Dedicated to improving the health status of Montanans and to increasing the quality and accessibility of healthcare services for people across the state.ABOUT THE FOUNDATION >>
MHCF, the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, and the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services, partnered to support a new project that will provide earlier diagnosis and treatment of substance misuse in Montana youth and adults. Called “Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment,” or “SBIRT,” the approach helps primary care doctors and other providers identify and begin addressing risky alcohol and drug use early-on.
