The Palouse Advocacy League has released a comprehensive list of mental health providers in Whitman and Latah County. The organization was previously called The #3 Memorial Fund which was created after the death last January of WSU quarterback Tyler Hilinski.

The League’s list is intended to make it easier for residents to find mental health care providers near them.

The list is organized into four sections: The first includes psychiatrists and other professionals who can prescribe anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications, plus other psychotherapeutic drugs. The second group lists psychologists who can diagnose mental illness, but do not prescribe medications. The third category contains social workers, counselors and mental health therapists. The final group includes resources for organizations that provide peer support, group therapy or treatment for substance abuse disorders.

The list is available in print from the Palouse Advocacy League and online as a Google Drive document via the organization’s Facebook page. The group plans to update the list on a quarterly basis.

“More resources and information are always better,” said Palouse Advocacy League Chair Shelley Calissendorff. “Now people of all ages who are interested in receiving mental health care services will have a reliable single source they can use to locate those specialists.”
