Lee Carlson Center for Mental Health and Well-Being, a provider of mental health services to individuals of all ages in the community for the past 38 years announced in June that it will begin providing in-home mental health services to children and their families across Southern Anoka County and North Western Hennepin County.
Our goal as a provider is to respond to our community’s needs. We are doing this in more ways with greater creativity all the time,” said Executive Director Rob Edwards.
Lee Carlson Center is already a provider of school-based mental health across five school districts and manages a drop-in center for adults with severe and persistent mental illness in Anoka County serving over 70 adults each day. “Our wide range of services impact the lives of more than 6,000 individuals every year,” said Edwards.
Lee Carlson Center operates a mental health clinic on University Avenue in Fridley. Psychiatric services and psychological testing as well as support for domestic abuse victims and perpetrators of domestic violence are offered through the agency. Family therapy services are available as are services for children as young as three.
Edwards said that the agency will focus efforts on providing in-home services in about 10 cities initially and then expand to cover all of Anoka County and Northern Hennepin County. The agency accepts all major insurance plans and offers a sliding fee plan through the county for those who qualify. For any services Lee Carlson Center provides, the direct line to call to make a referral or to schedule with a therapist is 763-780-3036.
