Lee Carlson Center for Mental Health & Wellbeing (LCC) is a non-profit community mental health center located in the Twin Cities north metro area. We are committed to providing affordable and exceptional mental health services to the community, particularly focused on trauma-centered care for children, adolescents, and adults. As we all adjust and navigate this post-pandemic environment, the need for critical mental health services has increased significantly. LCC serves as a safety net provider, ensuring that everyone, regardless of their ability to pay, can access high-quality mental health care.

In 2022, we covered over $100,000 in care costs for individuals who were under- or uninsured. And this amount is expected to be even higher this year. This financial support is crucial to ensuring LCC provides mental health services to those in need. Your gift helps cover these non-billable care costs:

- School-Based Mental Health Program: Your gift enables students in the program to address their mental health needs within their schools without any barriers, including financially. This is particularly important, as mental health issues among students have become more prevalent due to the challenges posed by the pandemic.

- Support for Parents and Guardians: Parents and guardians of students in the school-based mental health program also require psychoeducation and support as they navigate how to best support their children and address their own mental health needs. Your gift ensures that they can access these resources.

- Bridgeview Members: Adults with severe and persistent mental illnesses are able to access mental health care through our Bridgeview Drop-In Center, regardless of ability to pay. Your gift helps provide a wide range of mental health services, including individual and group therapies, art therapies, and other resources that contribute to their overall well-being.

- Un- or Underinsured Neighbors: Your contributions allow LCC to offer outpatient clinical therapy to neighbors who are un- or underinsured. This ensures that they can receive the necessary mental health care even when they cannot afford it through traditional means.

Your support is essential in maintaining and expanding these vital mental health services, especially as the demand for mental health care continues to grow, and financial challenges persist in the post-pandemic environment. We can't continue this critical work without YOU!
