CMHS is a comprehensive mental health center primarily serving children and their families since 1988. Our strength lies in diagnosing and treating mental health issues from infancy through early adulthood using the latest and best techniques. By providing most of our services in the schools, children can access services easily. With a clinical outpatient office in Grand Rapids, we serve families primarily in Itasca, St. Louis, and Aitkin Counties. Our school based service area encompasses the school districts of Bigfork, Deer River, Grand Rapids, Greenway, Hill City, Nashwauk-Keewatin, and Warba.
CMHS is currently providing mental health care and support through telehealth. Telehealth is currently being utilized for all therapy, skills, and case management services.
