About the Clinic

The mission of Minnesota Mental Health Clinics is to be the leading provider of mental health services to clients in the Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area.

By providing excellent, client centered service, Minnesota Mental Health Clinics promotes client stabilization and empowerment, community integration and helps clients achieve the highest level of functional capacity and personal growth.

Our Philosophy

The most practical approach to good mental health is a partnership between our Mental Health Professionals and our clients, with both working to establish the client’s goals, to design a realistic treatment plan for achieving those goals, and to sort through the issues that must be addressed along the way.

Our Credentials

We are licensed by the Minnesota State Department of Human Services as a Rule 29 Mental Health Clinic, functioning as a private practice association of Mental Health Professionals. Every member of our professional staff is licensed under Minnesota law to provide mental health services.

In addition to doctorate-level and masters-level psychologists, clinical social workers, and marriage and family therapists, we have psychiatrists on staff who work closely with our therapists to provide complete mental health care — including the ability to prescribe appropriate medications as necessary.

We also work with outside mental health providers, such as hospital-based treatment programs and other in-patient facilities, to ensure continuity in your overall mental health treatment program.
