Thanks for Working Here This Week: Tisha Mcintosh, RN, BSN, Behavioral Health Services

Campbell County Health is proud of its employees, and we want the CCH family and the Campbell County community to know about the good work that they do for this organization.

Meet Tisha McIntosh, RN, BSN, the Director of Behavioral Health Services at Campbell County Memorial Hospital in Gillette, Wyoming. Tisha graduated from Indian Hills Community College in 1995 with her registered nurse degree and received her bachelors of science in nursing from the University of Iowa in 2005. Tisha has worked for CCH for seven years, and has spent 25 years serving behavioral health patients. For those who don’t know, Behavioral Health Services provides the Northeastern Wyoming community with compassionate, confidential and comprehensive treatment and counseling of behavioral disorders, mental illness and substance abuse treatment following detox.

Tisha accepted the role of Director for BHS in late 2019. Tisha’s goals for BHS are to begin to change the stigma of mental illness in the Campbell County, Wyoming community and within CCH. She looks for the department to do more outreach in the community, school district and clinics because, as she says, mental health is everywhere. Ultimately, Tisha wants to reduce suicide attempts and completions in the community, a problem that goes far beyond the walls of Behavioral Health Services.

Tisha was inspired to work in health care because she loves helping people. “I have six doctors in my family—three of those are psychiatrists. Growing up, I always found their career interesting and liked that fact that they made a big difference in people’s lives,” she says.

Tisha’s health care hero is her cousin, Joey. “He is a psychiatrist and an attorney. He represents people who can’t represent themselves. I have seen him make a difference in people’s life’s that may have been shunned from society. I too want to make a difference. I don’t want anyone to feel as if there is no hope or that they have no one to talk to or care about them as a person,” she says.

When Tisha isn’t at work she loves to travel—she’s been to 23 countries so far—as well as paint and camp.

We asked Tisha what she likes most about working for CCH. Check out her response:

“I take pride in working for Campbell County Health and Behavioral Health Services because of the team approach here. Clients receive well-rounded care, and we are able to assist clients in many ways that are not available in other organizations,” she says.
