On this website, we use the word "provider" to mean anyone who is providing services or supports for youth and families. This includes: local mental health providers, school and county staff, community leaders, faith and cultural group leaders, primary care providers, after-school youth workers, foundations, policy makers, volunteers, etc!
Thank you for your service to youth and families. The items listed on this page may be of particular interest to you.
Do you have questions about RCCMHC? Do you need ideas/resources to support a child or family? We are here to help! We can also schedule a zoom meeting with your team to discuss RCCMHC and how we can collaborate!

Support Families in Crisis
Increased stress and isolation are leading to increased mental health, substance use, and maltreatment issues... so more families are experiencing crises and need support.
Visit this page to find printable resources on navigating Ramsey County services, crisis warning signs and intervention strategies.
Refer a Family
You can refer a family to RCCMHC or families can self-refer. RCCMHC provides mental health resources, training opportunities, connections to community services, wellbeing events and more! Youth (up to age 24) must live in Ramsey County or be affiliated with a school district in Ramsey County. Qualifying youth must have a mental health diagnosis or must be struggling with emotions/behaviors that may put them at risk for a mental health diagnosis in the future.

Family Care Organizer
An "All in One Place" Family Care Organizer can make it easier for families to organize paperwork, keep track of changes, and share information with mental health professionals, doctors, child care, school, and family members etc. Just fill out the forms online and save to a folder on Google Drive or to a flashdrive or personal computer.
