HENNEPIN COUNTY SoC WORK

Hennepin County’s Behavioral Health Area is engaging in an aligned effort to implement a system of care. For background information, please see here:

In May 2021, Hennepin County Behavioral Health in partnership with the Hennepin County Children’s Mental Health Collaborative engaged with parents/caregivers and youth related to improving children’s mental health in Hennepin County. Key questions covered What does mental health mean to you? What are the major priorities for children’s mental health in Hennepin County? Stay tuned for a findings report and how feedback will inform our System of Care work.

May Visioning Sessions

What does mental health care for children mean to you?

Earn a gift card by sharing your feedback on Children’s Mental Health in Hennepin County. We want to know what children’s mental health means to you and ways to improve care experiences for the future. Two separate sessions are planned for 1) parents/caregivers, and 2) youth/young adults. The Collaborative and Hennepin County will use feedback shared to inform strategies to improve children’s mental health in the region.

See below for two upcoming events and other ways to get involved. Note, each confirmed participant is limited to attending one visioning session.
