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.

County Events


3rd Annual Day at Home

More than ninety people gathered at the Broadway Ballroom Event Center in Alexandria on October 11, 2013 to discuss the current and future condition of mental health services in Minnesota and in the five-county region. Included in the discussion were five Minnesota State legislators, who spent several 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.

Region IV South includes the west central Minnesota counties of Douglas, Grant, Pope, Stevens, and Traverse.

The Adult Mental Health Initiatives, administered by the Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS), give local mental health authorities the ability to design a community-based delivery system to meet their needs and entrust them to accomplish them.
