Message From Our CEO
Reed Ernstrom
Reed Ernstrom BRMH CEO

We appreciate your interest in Bear River Mental Health, and hope you will take the opportunity to learn more about us and the services we provide. Life can, at times, be difficult and many of us will, unfortunately, experience periods of debilitating depression, anxiety, or serious problems that negatively impact daily living. If you or a loved one are enrolled in Medicaid and believe mental health treatment may be beneficial, or at least feel that further assessment is needed, please contact us. We are your community resource for mental healthcare. Our professional staff can help you directly, or may be able to recommend other options in our community to accommodate your individual needs, if our scope of services is not applicable to your particular situation. We, very much, look forward to hearing from you, should you feel in need, and wish only the best for you and your family.
