MN Legislative Propose to increase funding for mental health care services

Beam Project Type:     Project in Concept Phase

Mental illness and its impact on individuals and communities has long been noted as a challenge within our social service and public health systems. However, with growing numbers of those suffering from mental illness, limited resources have been available to tackle stigma, holistically provide treatment services, manage the numbers of individuals forced into boarding within emergency departments while in crisis and provide a continuum of care back into the community. Rochester Senator Dave Senjem believes that it is time that the state of Minnesota address the gaps within our system and is working on legislation that in combination would push the state to invest $85 million into permanent supportive housing and the construction of regional mental health triage centers. The combination of these two efforts will provide a facility with the proper atmosphere and level of care to de-escalate and appropriately triage those in crisis, as well as provide ongoing supportive housing to help prevent future crises.

  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
