Mental health has been identified as a health challenge facing Crow Wing County by the Community Health Needs Assessment recently completed by Cuyuna Regional Medical Center. A group of concerned community members coordinated this conference to bring awareness to the mental health issues faced in our area and plan future steps on how we can help residents.
CRMC has made improving mental health of the residents it serves a priority with the goal of decreasing the number of adults who report poor mental health from the 28 percent reported. CRMC is proud to sponsor this conference and be one of the community organizations that are working together to improve mental health care in Crow Wing County.
The conference is open to the community. Content will be directed toward business and community leaders and resources will be provided for employee program development. Following the conference, all attendees will be informed of future related activities. There is no cost to attend but registration is required.
