Wilder guidelines and procedures related to COVID-19


There is no higher priority than the health and safety of our clients, families and staff. At this time, Wilder is conducting operations with additional precautions to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. Please see below for information about our services.


Community Mental Health and Wellness

Given the current status of COVID-19 in Minnesota, we are suspending in-person appointments and visits. We will continue to provide mental health and recovery services via phone and video (telehealth). If you have an appointment scheduled, you do not need to cancel it. Your provider will be contacting you to set up your appointment via phone or video. Contact the Wilder Community Mental Health and Wellness Clinic for questions related to appointments or care needs: 651-280-2310.

Day Treatment Guidelines

Wilder's Day Treatment program has begun to reinstate in-person services with preventative measures in place to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 or other illnesses. Each parent/guardian will need to read and sign the guidelines below before their child can resume in-person Day Treatment services. Staff will provide you with a print copy to sign and are available to answer any questions you may have.
