The Hennepin County Children’s Mental Health Collaborative elected to change its governance structure and will now work with NAMI-MN as a fiscal sponsor. This governance change will further allow the Collaborative to work with its partners to influence the development and ongoing operation of an accessible and effective children’s mental health system in Hennepin County. This enhanced relationship will begin August 1, 2021.

Applying for Hennepin County Benefits
Hennepin County has changed the way we offer service so that residents can connect to or renew benefits wherever, whenever.
