A Legacy of Innovation
Our founder, Margaret Hamm Kelley, was ahead of her time. A social worker and granddaughter of renowned St. Paul leader Theodore Hamm, she recognized that mental illness was a serious problem … especially for those unable to afford care. In 1954, Margaret established Hamm Clinic. She gathered a team of clinical social workers, psychologists, and psychiatrists to provide integrated mental health care to individuals who could not pay for treatment. She also fought against the stigma of mental illness. Her motto was: Comprehensive mental health care is a basic human right that should be accessible to everyone.
We have carried her vision forward to this day by continuing to offer forward-thinking programming that is responsive to the mental health needs of the community.
We hope you will consider supporting Hamm Clinic on Give to the Max Day so we can continue offering innovative mental health services to the community!
