Community Listening Sessions: Navigating Mental and Behavioral Health Care

Wilderness Health is hosting a community listening session in Silver Bay, Minnesota. The listening session will be held on Monday, May 20th from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the North Shore Area Partners building at 36 Shop­ping Center, Silver Bay, MN. Working in collaboration with local community develop­ment organization, Northspan Group, Inc., Wilderness is in­viting community members to share their stories and help shape the future of mental health care.

Through funding from the Health Resources and Ser­vices Administration’s Rural Health Network Development Program, Wilderness Health looks to make care navigation easier. This grant is specifi­cally focused on mental and behavioral health. Through a series of several community listening sessions to be held across Northeastern Minne­sota, Wilderness Health will ask community members to share their healthcare stories. Together Wilderness Health and the communities will iden­tify successes, barriers, and brainstorm possible solutions. Following these events Wil­derness Health plans to reach back out to communities with information on what we have learned from our listening ses­sions and extend an invitation to participate in the next steps in grant programming.

A light meal will be served to participants. Registration is not required but is appreciated. If you plan to attend please register at: https://bit.ly/3xXNaMm.   

Wilderness Health under­stands that the patient’s per­spective is key to creating ef­fective health care and requests help from Silver Bay and Lake County area residents in co-creating pathways of care.
