Northern Pines Mission

 

Northern Pines is an integrated system of services committed to individuals, families and communities. We are dedicated to providing appropriate clinical mental health care along with preventative, educational and supportive programs throughout Central Minnesota.

Drop-In Centers

If you’re trying to find your way through some complicated new systems while dealing with depression, anxiety, or any other form of mental health disturbance, we would like to help. The drop-in center provides opportunities to develop friendships, participate with others in activities, connect with services, and learn symptom management techniques along with independent living skills.  The Drop-In Centers will provide a safe and fun environment for all adults with a mental illness.  

 

Various events for consumers are planned on a monthly basis. These may include:

• Bingo tournaments
