(POCATELLO, ID) – The city of Pocatello welcomed a new counseling center Wednesday. Gateway Counseling opens its doors as Idaho’s suicide numbers are on the rise. Administrators say that suicide rates have skyrocketed since 2009, and that the region is in need of more facilities that can offer help for those dealing with depression. The new facility is a subsidiary of Well Balanced, a non-profit that assists low-income patients in getting access to mental health care.
