In 1995, the Minnesota legislature passed legislation authorizing pilot projects that would result in systemic change in the delivery of mental health services for adults with serious and persistent mental illness. The Region IV South Mental Health Initiative is one of the 15 projects statewide that are involved in redesigning and implementing improved systems for delivering mental health services in communities.

All offices for Region 4 South had been moved to:

507 N Nokomis NE, Suite 203

4th Annual Day at Home

Nearly one-hundred people gathered at the Broadway Ballroom Event Center in Alexandria last Friday to discuss the current and future condition of mental health services in Minnesota and in the five-county region. Included in the discussion were four Minnesota State legislators and a representative from U.S. Senator Al Franken's office, who spent a few hours discussing the issues with attendees and listening to the personal stories of individuals whose lives have been affected, in some way, by mental illness.
