We’re here for it.

Navigator Network

We don’t heal alone. We inherently need one another, at a basic biological level.

The Navigator Network is a community-led approach to mental health and wellbeing. This small yet powerful group of volunteers connect individuals to existing resources and are the heart of a collaborative effort working to build an ecosystem where everyone can thrive.

Who we are

We are your neighbors and friends, and Big Sky’s bartenders, custodians, non-profit leaders, administrators, ski patrollers, teachers, event and HR directors, small business owners, teachers, grocery and hospitality workers, housekeepers, chaplains, chefs, and beyond.

What We Do

We are trained in emotional first aid to provide in-the-moment support, suicide alertness, and know how to help community members access services. We are not mental health experts, but when you need someone to turn to and you’re not sure where to start, we are here for it. *We are not a substitute for mental health counseling and should not be used in place of a counselor. If you are in crisis, call 211 or 911

Why It Matters

We are here to disrupt the status quo by building a culture of care in Big Sky. Together, let’s shift a culture that’s been deeply rooted in, “Don’t show weakness; I can do this on my own”, to a culture of reciprocity and mutual aid.
