Founded in 1969, People Incorporated Mental Health Services promotes and secures independence for people with mental illness.
Meet Brian: Brian suffers from depression, and became homeless a few years ago. After living in a tent in homeless camps around St. Paul, he met a People Incorporated outreach worker who helped him move from the streets into one of our Safe Haven homes, where he worked to re-acclimate to living indoors, received mental health care and medications, and began to obtain assistance with finding and securing his own apartment. What we do works – 92 percent of the individuals like Brian that we serve remain successfully housed after 12 months.
Each year, 1 in every 4 adults experiences a mental illness of some kind. This means it’s highly likely that someone you know has faced the challenge of living with an illness that is not physically apparent, that is socially stigmatized, and that impacts every aspect of their daily life. At People Incorporated Mental Health Services, we provide a range of innovative services that empower those with severe and persistent mental illness to avoid hospitalization and institutionalization, and live more independent, purposeful, and hopeful lives. From our humble beginnings in 1969 as a drop-in center for homeless Vietnam veterans, People Incorporated has become the largest nonprofit mental health service provider in the state of Minnesota.
Our dedicated staff makes a difference in the lives of more than 7,000 children, adults and seniors every year. We operate more than 60 programs across the Twin Cities Metro in the areas of: Mental Illness/Chemical Dependency; Children’s and Family Services; Homelessness; Clinical Services; Crisis Services; Case Management; Residential Services; and Community Support.
The life-affirming and life-changing care provided by People Incorporated mental Health Services is an important piece of what makes the Twin Cities area a great place for all of us to live. What we do works - for the people we serve and their families, for public budgets, and for our community.
