One in five people will experience a mental health concern in their lifetime. Many will never get the care they need. Others will struggle to find the right treatment and services to help them recover.

We’re here to help people across Minnesota when they need it. And the need has never been greater, as people experience unprecedented levels of stress, anxiety, depression and loss related to COVID-19.

Our Minnesota Warmline provides people across Minnesota with an opportunity to connect with others, find support, and reduce social isolation in a peer-to-peer environment before they reach a point of crisis. Many people living with mental illness are struggling, as other services they depend on to stay well have been unavailable through much of 2020, and one in four of our callers of our 12,000+ callers so far in 2021 say that they would go to an emergency room or call EMS/crisis if they couldn't reach us.

Our online screening tool is an easy, anonymous and confidential way for people to screen for many common mental health conditions. The number of screenings has increased exponentially in recent months. So far in 2021, more than 26,000 people have completed our mental health screenings.

Our Mental Health Helpline connects people with information, resources and referrals that can help them get the support and treatment they need. The Helpline takes hundreds of calls and online chats each year from across the state, and use of it has more than doubled over 2019.

The services and support we offer to people in Minnesota has never been in greater demand. The holidays are the busiest time for many of our programs, as more people reach out for help and connections with others. 

Your support will help the Minnesota Warmline, Mental Health Helpline and other programs connect with more people across Minnesota, and ensure they have access to the help and resources they need.


Our Mission and Vision

Mental Health Minnesota is the voice of lived mental health experience.

We carry that declaration forward as we work to advance mental health and well-being for all, increase access to mental health treatment and services, and provide education, resources and support across Minnesota.

Our vision is a world free from stigma that improves mental health and well-being for all.

About Mental Health Minnesota

Mental Health Minnesota was founded in 1939, and was the state’s first mental health advocacy and education organization, celebrating its 80th year in 2019. We are a non-profit and non-partisan organization, and an affiliate of Mental Health America.

We work to help people in their journey toward mental health recovery and wellness through direct service, public policy, education and outreach.

We work to promote a #B4Stage4 approach to mental health, which includes prevention, early recognition of symptoms, access to treatment as needed, and ongoing support, with a goal of recovery for all.
