Mission

The mission of the Mental Health Consortium of Carver County (MHCCC) is to create sustainable community partnerships that are pro-active in promoting mental health awareness and education in Carver County. 

Vision

The Vision of the Mental Health Consortium of Carver County (MHCCC) is to create community partnerships among private and public agencies, consumers, and community members to promote mental health as a critical component of overall wellness through:

    1. Education
    2. Early identification and intervention
    3. Awareness of crisis and treatment services
    4. Reduce stigma surrounding mental health
    5. Accessing resources at the State and Federal level.
