Adult Mental Health Unit
The Adult Mental Health Unit assists an individual with mental illness to live independently in the community. Services that are available to support this category of our population are case management services which provide referrals to community mental health center, community outreach programs, day treatment groups, drop in program at the community mental health center, residential treatment facilities, board and lodges, money for housing support, and assistance from local food shelves and others.
There is a wide array of services for MH in the Brainerd Lakes Area that we work with on a daily basis. We often work with other supportive services in our area to assist those on their road to recovery. Some of our Local resources include the following:
- Northern Pines Mental Health Center
- Nystrom’s and Associates
- Northern Psychiatric
- Lakeland Psychiatric
- Wellness in the Woods
- Access North
The Mental Health unit also does prescreening for judicial commitment when they receive an examiner's statement in support of a commitment from a medical doctor or psychiatrist who believes the person is a danger to himself or others due to his or her Mental Health.
