Artwork by Shodair Patients

We can’t change their trauma, but we can help heal their future.

Childhood should be filled with hope, not hardships. Unfortunately, many Montana children are in crisis. This trauma can manifest in many parts of their lives, including something as innocent as a child’s piece of art.

Mission: To Heal, Help and Inspire Hope

Shodair Children’s Hospital is creating a healthy and hopeful Montana through specialized psychiatric care for children and adolescents along with a nationally recognized genetics program providing care for all ages. 99% of our patients come from right here in Montana. And, because no family should have to worry about the cost to help their loved one, we don’t turn anyone away. Help us create a healthy and hopeful Montana.
