Community Dialogue Maps Path Forward for Mental Health Care in Minnesota

The Action Group hosted a Community Dialogue on October 30 for all community stakeholders to examine the current state of mental health care in Minnesota and articulate a path forward for individual and collective action.

The event featured an array of esteemed speakers and panelists to help explore how to accelerate performance improvement in integrated mental health care.

Participants made clear their commitment to improving mental health care:

  • 100% of respondents agreed, “I am committed to taking action, within my own sphere of influence, to improve mental health care.”
  • 98% of respondents agreed, “I am optimistic that, TOGETHER, under the leadership of a Guiding Coalition of Minnesota purchasers and other stakeholders, we will be able to accelerate performance improvement in integrated mental health care.”
Once available only to Action Group members, Working Well in Minnesota, a purchaser’s guide that offers insights and actions to help Minnesota employers advance mental health efforts in the workplace, is now available without charge to all! 



A news feature capturing the event appeared on the front page of the Star Tribune!
