"There comes a point where we need to stop just pulling people out of the river.
We need to go upstream and find out why they're falling in."
An organization built for those struggling with addiction, trauma, mental wellness and recovery issues, run by those who have lived experiences in all these areas...State Certified as Peer Support Specialists, ready to provide support, guidance and education. To you, your family, and our community, in safe and non-judgmental spaces throughout Minnesota.
Mutual support—including the sharing of experiential knowledge and skills and social learning—plays an invaluable role in recovery.
People encouraging and engaging other people in recovery and providing each other with a sense of belonging, supportive relationships, valued roles, and community.
These we believe to be the building blocks of Recovery:
Build Connection. Foster Purpose. Inspire Hope.
Recovery provides the essential motivating message of a better future—that people can and do overcome the barriers and obstacles that confront them. It not only benefits individuals by focusing on their abilities to live, work, learn, and fully participate in our society, but also enriches the texture of American community life. Hope is internalized; but can be fostered by peers, families, friends, providers, and others. And building the 'Heart and Mind Connection' is the catalyst of our process.
The Heart and Mind Connection© is a Peer-run, veteran and woman owned 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
dedicated to mental health and substance use recovery, advocacy and awareness. Our mission is to develop connection,
foster purpose and empower ourselves and others struggling with hope, through education, suicide prevention programming and legislative activism.
