The Hennepin County Mental Health Center provides ongoing, comprehensive, client-centered treatment that promotes whole-person wellness and recovery, self-efficacy and life enhancement.
Our experienced team of professionals understands that recovery is a personal process and tailors treatment to individual needs. We work with each client to develop a plan of care that builds on strengths, focuses on person-specific goals and invites the participation of the client’s support system and other service providers.
