If you are experiencing a mental health crisis that requires immediate attention:

Wilder Community Mental Health & Wellness is a leading mental and chemical health service provider for children, adults and families and one of eight Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics in Minnesota. Our whole-family, culturally appropriate and trauma informed approach to mental health and wellness has addressed the needs of diverse communities since 1924. 

Safe & Secure Telehealth Appointments Available

Wilder is committed to supporting the mental wellness of you and your family throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are accepting new clients and referrals for mental health and substance use disorder services with safe and secure telehealth appointments using phone and/or video. Current clients with in-person appointments scheduled do not have to cancel—we will be reaching out to you to set up your telehealth appointment.

Though in-person appointments have been temporarily suspended, therapists and staff are available to provide services via “telehealth”—appointments conveniently provided by phone or video so you can still get mental health and addiction support. Many of the services we typically provide in person are available via telehealth, including individual and family therapy, mental health assessments, case management, medication management and more.

Telehealth appointments are conducted via secure video conference or by telephone. Our staff will work with you to set up telehealth appointments in a way that is comfortable and convenient for you. You can make an appointment, referral or contact us with questions at 651-280-2310. See below for frequently asked questions about telehealth.

People are more than a diagnosis and a treatment at Wilder Community Mental Health and Wellness. While we treat individuals, we recognize that healing is more likely to happen when families and other support systems are involved. Together, we help families grow and heal!
