Mental & Emotional Well-BEing

Graphic of a leaf icon.

Are you feeling sad, fearful, depressed or overwhelmed?

Depression, anxiety, addiction and other mental health issues are not a normal part of aging. Left untreated, they can lead to fatigue, illness and even suicide.  Senior Reach provides seniors (60 and older) living independently (not a nursing home or assisted living facility) with behavior health services. Counseling sessions are provided in the comfort of your own home or an office setting. We also provide additional care management and service navigation.

Short-term behavioral health counseling sessions provided by a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.  HRDC Senior Programs partners with Community Health Partners (CHP) to provide the behavioral health counseling.

Care Management services provided by HRDC staff include assistance with navigating available resources and applications.

You may qualify for this program if you are 60 years or older and living independently.

Call Senior Programs in Bozeman at 406.587.5444 or Livingston at 406.333.2537.

All Senior Programs, including Senior Reach, provide care management and service navigation to help seniors connect with community resources at no cost to them.

Insurance including Medicare or Medicaid is billed for the counseling sessions and there may be a co-pay.  However, Community Health Partners (CHP) provides a sliding scale to ensure all patients get the care they need at a cost they can afford.

Brooke Poole

Public Sector

Since 2015, Brooke has been working with Allergan Aesthetics, Body Contouring. In 2018, Brooke began her role as Senior Manager of Training. Brooke graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Commercial Photography from Appalachian State University in 2011.

Brooke began her role on our Board in 2019. However, she feels it’s more fitting to say that she gets to serve on our Board. For Brooke, an evening at our Fork & Spoon was her first glance into our organization’s powerful work. As Brooke states, joining the Board has only expanded her appreciation for the caliber of people leading our mission and the impact of our vast ecosystem of services. While metrics alone are impressive, Brooke likes to visualize each number as an individual example of support – an extension of a helping hand, a moment of relief – given to one of our neighbors. She is grateful for the opportunity to participate in shaping HRDC’s future.

Although Brooke spends most of her volunteer time with HRDC, she was fortunate enough to build with Habitat for Humanity over the course of the summer in 2020. Her favorite place to spend time is anywhere under the Big Sky, although Hyalite may be her favorite place on Earth.

Ron Brey

Public Sector

Ron served as Bozeman’s Assistant City Manager from 1990 to 2008. After retiring, Ron joined our Board in 2011. Ron received his Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Montana in 1977, and his Masters in Science in Rural, Town, and Regional Planning from the University of Montana in 1987.

During his time with the City of Bozeman, Ron saw the important role that HRDC has played in our community. Ron has seen that HRDC provides necessary social services to assure that all Bozeman residents could obtain housing, food, training, employment and the other necessities of life. He also came to understand that HRDC was always able to respond immediately as new community needs arose. Ron believes that the dedication, hard work, and compassion of HRDC’s staff make it a real honor to serve on the Board.

Ron also serves on the Trails, Open Space and Parks Committee for the City of Bozeman, and as a volunteer with the Red Cross. One of Ron’s favorite activities is walking his beloved dog every day, enjoying many of Bozeman’s trails and parks, like Burke Park, Bozeman Creek, and the Hyalite and Mount Ellis areas. Ron and his wife Claire enjoy spending their days with family, friends, and time outdoors.
