Get Involved

Let's Make A Change

Support comes in many forms. To help us achieve our mission of eliminating stigma surrounding mental illnesses, here are some ways you can get involved:

Attend a Meeting

Coalition meetings are always open
to new members or those
interested in membership.

2020 Coalition Meetings

April 17 - July 17 - October 16

Time: 11am - 12:30pm

Location: Government Services Center

St. Louis River Room (2nd Floor)

Go to an Event

Coming together as a community through events is a visible way to show support.

Community Events

Community events are open to everyone, although some may require registration. On the event page you will also find support groups available in the area as well as a place to submit any related events you or your organization may be hosting.

Be an Advocate

Start reducing stigma in your organization using our employer resources or ring us to your organization to present on the stigma surrounding mental illness.

Take Action in Your Workplace

Northland Healthy Minds aims to provide a variety of resources and support tools to help make your workplace more supportive of mental health and for those experiencing mental health struggles. Check out our Employer Resources page for details.

Request a Presentation

If you'd like us to come talk to your organization about Northland Healthy Minds and stigma surrounding mental illness, email us with information about your organization and when you'd like us to come. 

Join a Work Group

Joining a work group is a great way to get involved with Northland Healthy Minds and reduce the stigma associated with mental illness

Current Work Groups

Work group leaders and members will plan and execute community events and workplace initiatives that:

  • Make our community a more caring place for people with mental illnesses

  • Increase knowledge about mental illnesses

  • Make people more comfortable talking to someone about mental illness

  • Increase compassion for people living with mental illnesses

 

Work groups meet for 1-2 hours/month, and are looking for people with event/initiative ideas, and time outside of meetings to develop the ideas and execute the details associated with them.

Community Events Group

Examples of past community events include a film series, a photography exhibit, a performance with jazz guitarist Sam Miltich, youth story times, Fidgety Fairy Tale performances at elementary schools, and mental health first aid trainings.
