Mission - Transforming lives by fostering mental health and well-being through creative innovation

Vision: To evolve the thinking about mental health and well-being.

PrairieCare Fund is a grantmaking organization created to raise awareness and reduce the stigma of mental health issues facing youth and adolescents.   Founded in 2016 by compassionate clinicians, community advocates and legislators, the Fund does not provide direct patient care, but rather works in partnership with educations, youth organizations and healthcare professionals to advance mental health support.  
PrairieCare Fund has awarded $1.1 Million through a granting process to over 60 school districts and four non-profits for their mental health initiatives!  

Why does this matter?  Suicide is the second leading cause of death in adolescents.  Only 10% of youth and adolescents in need of mental health services receive treatment.  AND, early intervention is a critical key to managed mental health and wellness.  Plus, according to a 2022 survey of parents, NAMI-MN found 85% of parents would like to see enhanced or added mental health education and resources in schools.

The PrairieCare Fund is addressing these problems in health care both in words and in action. We are working to break down barriers, raise awareness and make a difference in the lives of children and families dealing with mental health challenges, and building strong communities for generations to come!
