May is National
Mental Health Awareness Month
Mental Health Resources(MHR) is a progressive, nonprofit organization providing community-based mental health and substance use services to adults recovering from serious mental illness and/or substance use issues. MHR has over 40 years of expertise providing compassionate care to people living with mental illness. Those we serve often come to us in times of great need and face extraordinary challenges. Our comprehensive services allow us to work with people on their individual needs.
People Incorporated was established in 1969 as an innovative provider of vital behavioral and mental health services in Minnesota. We are a one-stop model of behavioral health care with 65 programs in 40 locations throughout the Twin Cities. We provide dozens of integrated services including homeless outreach, substance use disorder treatment programs, outpatient treatment, residential programs, children’s services, mental health trainings, and more.
As Minnesota's children's mental health leader, Washburn Center for Children serves more than 3,900 children and their 11,700 family members annually. More than 65% of children and families served are from families with low incomes. Early childhood, school age and adolescent services are provided in clinics, 24 public schools and families' homes. Washburn Center’s therapists are trained in evidence-based practices for children’s mental health to ensure our clients receive high quality care.
