A Place of Our Own: A Mental Health Travelogue
Settled on the eastern shore of Pope County's Lake Minnewaska, Glenwood Minnesota is home to the "Community Partners" mental health drop-in center. One of three drop-in centers in the five county region, "Community Partners" provides a safe place where people diagnosed with a mental illness can visit to find friendship, fun, and support.
Join us as we take a guided tour of this important place of socialization. We'll meet some of the people who are a regular presence at the center, and get a taste of daily life at "Community Partners".
