Seeking Parents to share stories to help plan for Behavioral Health Homes

Are you a parent or caregiver of a child who lives with a mental illness or chronic health condition?
Do you have or could you qualify for Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare?
If so, we’d love to get your input about your child’s experience with health care. You will receive a $20 gift card for your participation in a 1 hour phone interview. Questions will elicit information on your child’s experiences with health, mental health, and wellness care, barriers encountered, cultural/spiritual health needs and practices, and your perceptions/opinions of how mental health and health care could be improved. Your input will be used in planning a new medical model called Health Homes.
Please contact Genna Torney if you are interested in participating or have any questions at 651-645-2948 X118 orgtorney@namimn.org. All interviews must be done by February 13th.
