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.
Anyone can refer! We also accept self-referrals from parents or caregivers. Call/Text 800-565-2575 or use the referral button below.
Family Support and/or Therapy is available in English, Spanish, Hmong, Lao, ASL and Arabic. Other languages are served with interpreters.
