Mental Health Day on the Hill - Minnesota

March 9th, 2023

People Incorporated staff gathered with the community at the Minnesota Capitol for Mental Health Day on the Hill. Among the bills discussed were more comprehensive psychiatric residential treatment coverage, children’s mental health, which, if passed, would remedy long waitlists and create continuity of care for children, and the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline, a program currently operating in Minnesota on temporary federal funds.

We joined with representatives from Northern Pines Mental Health Center. In 2022, Northern Pines was one of four rural partners for our Artability program, which extended our offering of art therapy to those in rural communities without access to our urban locations.
