Similar to many mountain resort communities, Big Sky is a bit of a paradise paradox: with its sparkling rivers, snow-topped peaks and endless wilderness this is an outdoor enthusiast’s mecca. But under the hood, Big Sky can be a very challenging place to live with long winters, feelings of isolation, a transient community and income disparity. Montana is one of the top three states in the nation where rates of depression, substance abuse and suicide are the highest. When we normalize the struggles, we can create new ways of connecting with one another. Community members and leaders aim to cultivate a culture of care that supports people across all spectrums of age, race, gender and socio-economics.
