Welcome to Region 4 South Conversations, An Adult Mental Health Consortium.

Our Adult Mental Health Consortium represents five counties in west central Minnesota: Douglas, Grant, Pope, Stevens, and Traverse. Legislated stakeholders from each county meet on a monthly basis in a process appropriately named CONVERSATIONS. This group is composed of consumers, family members, county staff, vendors, and State Operated Services. Region 4 South assists and helps people avoid crisis and find appropriate services in conjunction with our goals and objectives. Our organization works to implement systemic change in the delivery of community-based mental health services for adults who have a serious and persistent mental illness.


7th Annual Day at Home in Region 4


More than 150 people gathered at the Broadway Ballroom Event Center in Alexandria last Friday to discuss issues surrounding mental health services in Minnesota and in the five-county region. Included in the discussion three Minnesota State legislators and the Assistant Commissioner of Community Supports Administration, who spent the morning discussing the issues with attendees and listening to the personal stories of individuals whose lives have been affected, in some way, by mental illness.
