Mental Health of Minnesota

Ambassador
 

Mental Health Minnesota’s mission is to enhance mental health, promote individual empowerment, and increase access to treatment and services for persons living with mental illness. We work to help people in their journey toward mental health recovery and wellness through peer-to-peer programs and services, public policy advocacy, education and outreach.

 

Peers: Link to Help

certified peer specialist
 

In July 2010, Kiesler Wellness Center (the clubhouse-based program for Northland Counseling Center in Itasca County, MN), instituted the Certified Peer Support Specialist (PSS) Program, a unique and revolutionary approach to providing mental health support. The PSS works as a member of the Northland Counseling Center’s Community Support Program (CPS) team to help program participants, referred to as peers, make progress on their identified recovery goals.

 

National Alliance on Mental Illness

community Liason, QPR Certified
 

NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

What started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 has blossomed into the nation's leading voice on mental health. Today, we are an association of hundreds of local affiliates, state organizations and volunteers who work in your community to raise awareness and provide support and education that was not previously available to those in need.

The International Association of Peer Supporters (iNAPS) is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization. It was begun by a small group of peer specialists in Michigan interested in what was happening in other states. Founded in 2004, the organization now includes members from every state and several countries outside the US. Members of this network can come together to share their ideas and innovations, exchange resources and information based on real world application, and add their voice to others when concerns and issues affecting all of us require a global response from a global community. We are actively and intentionally working on making iNAPS a more inclusive and safe space for individuals who have historically been marginalized.
