Why Mental Health?

Why Mental Health? Because it matters to our community. 

Crow Wing and Cass Counties is experiencing a mental health crisis.

Our community investment grant is prioritizing programs that work to increase access to mental health services in our community. In a 2014 Community Health Needs Assessment conducted by Essentia Health, 1 in 4 adults self-reported dealing with a mental health condition. In the years since that needs assessment was published, that statistic has increased.

How to get involved:

If you are affiliated with or know of a local, non-profit organization that has an already existing program that makes it easier for people to obtain mental health services, please check out information about our Community Investment grant application. We are also seeking new programs to address this crisis, so we encourage those with ideas to connect with already established organizations to find innovative ways to address this issue.

Together, we can make sure that everyone in has access to the help that they need.
