Mind Matters
Northland Healthy Minds envisions a world where anyone can get the support and assistance they deserve for their mental illness without fear of discrimination, marginalization, and criminalization due to stigma.  ​

This newsletter provides updates about news and events in our area supporting our vision and mission.
MPR News Ground Level: Creativity and Mental Health
Has creative expression changed your experience of your own anxiety or depression? Whether you listen to music, perform on stage, or write short stories, we’re curious to hear how creativity has affected your mental well-being. What works? How is the health care system using creativity the arts in treating mental health?  Whether you work in mental health treatment, or experience your own struggles for wellness, join us over a hot bowl of soup and a beverage at the Duluth Folk School to share your thoughts and experiences.   MPR News will be recording this event for possible broadcast.
MPR News  Ground Level  goes behind the headlines and beyond the politics to expand understanding of our communities and our state. Ground Level seeks to reintroduce us to each other and rebuild common ground. And in Duluth, we are partnering with  Call to Mind , our new initiative on mental health. All of us experience various levels of mental well-being at different points in our life and half of us will personally experience at least one mental health condition in our lifetime.   Call to Mind  aims to inform and mobilize new conversation.
Guest: Jazz guitarist  Sam Miltich , who has publicly shared his struggles with mental illness, will share his music and join the conversation.
Host: Dan Kraker, MPR News and Dr. Carolyn Phleps
