Billings Clinic Classic
Since 1983, the Classic has been the premier fundraising event for Billings Clinic, raising millions of dollars over the years in support of advancing health care excellence. From the beginning, the Classic has capped off a week of fun-filled and good-natured sport rivalry with a spectacular evening of fabulous entertainment, food and friends.
For the last 21 years, Billings Clinic and an army of volunteers have lit up Broadway Avenue in the heart of downtown Billings with thousands of lights in over 30 tents as over 1,350 guests are entertained by stars of country and pop.

2019 Classic Cause
Building a Sustainable Fund for the Psychiatric Residency
Mental illness is the #1 cause of medical disability in the United States. Montana, Wyoming, and Alaska rank the highest in the United States in suicide completion rates, with numbers more than double the national average. Coincidentally, these three states are the only states in the U.S. without a psychiatry residency program. Mental illness affects individuals and families regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, race, or economic circumstance. Studies show that at least half of the population will face a mental health issue during their lifetime. This ranges from adjustment disorders and social anxiety to suicidal actions.
Last year, Billings Clinic physicians treated 19,929 patients through outpatient mental health care visits and 3,101 inpatient admissions. Through innovative programs like tele-psychiatry and the Helmsley Psychiatric Stabilization Unit, our providers have served patients from 55 of 56 Montana Counties and 11 of 23 counties in Wyoming. Despite our ongoing efforts, mental health care is still available to only a fraction of the people in our vast region.
We need to increase the number of psychiatrists in Montana to create additional access for patients. Billings Clinic has partnered with the University of Washington to develop Montana’s first Psychiatric Residency Program that will recruit, train, and retain a new generation of psychiatrists to expand across our region. The Psychiatry Residency inaugural class will begin their training in July of 2019.
Your support to train future psychiatrists will ensure patients in our region can access the mental health care they need close to home. The proceeds from this year’s Billings Clinic Classic will provide an endowment fund to sustain Montana’s first Psychiatric Residency Program.
