Behavioral Health & Wellness Clinic

This Clinic leverages the resources and expertise of county and community providers at one location with the potential to operate 24/7, 365 days a year. The renovation has resulted in space that offers support services in a dignified manner within a comfortable, calming setting. 

The purpose of the center is to provide triage and assessment services to individuals who walk in or are brought in by law enforcement and although are not at imminent risk to themselves or others appear, they appear to have substance or mental health issues. The goal of the center is to reduce the frequency of hospital emergency room visits and provide a lower cost treatment alternative.

The clinic consists of 13,000 USF on the first floor of the existing building and shares the patient entrance with the Withdrawal Management Program and Mental Health Crisis Stabilization functions that are also located in the building. Meeting desperately needed mental health services within the urban core of Minneapolis, the clinic includes assessment and procedure rooms, a large comfortable waiting area, and additional staff support spaces.
