Behavioral Care




Our Mission is to provide a full spectrum of services for those with major behavioral and emotional difficulties, especially the serious and persistently mentally ill (SPMI) population in the metro and beyond.

The Department of Psychiatry serves those in emotional crisis with 24-hour, seven-day-a-week crisis counseling, assessment, and referral. More than 42,000 calls and drop-in visits each year are handled by the Acute Psychiatric Services staff of psychiatrists, social workers, and psychiatric nurses. The APS is supported by Hennepin County funds and state grants, provides these services to any person in need.

Our treatment team includes psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatric social workers, advanced nurse practitioners, and psychiatric nurses.
