Client Served

Rating: 5

As the Family Service Collaborative Coordinator in the Minnetonka school district, my primary focus is ensuring a healthy community for kids and families within the district boundaries. Relate has been a valuable partner in serving the mental, emotional, and behavioral health needs of students and families pre-K through post-high school. Families and students in our community benefit from the counseling and support provided by Relate, and we are thankful for their partnership.

Relate has had an on-site presence at WeCAN for several years now, and it has proven to be an enormous help for our clients. Helping people resolve their most pressing problems in their ability to meet basic needs like food security and stable employment & housing must involve mental health care. Relate has been an excellent partner in delivering these services to our clients and we are grateful to have this transformational resource available to the many hundreds we serve.

I know from first-hand experience that Relate takes compliance and transparency seriously, that they are a reliable resource where community can find help, and that they are responsible in applying contributions toward building robust program services.

Relate Counseling is assertive and responsive, and employs many mental health professionals with a wide background of experiences to assist those with urgent mental health concerns. Services can include assessment, education, prevention and intervention. Relate also works with both youth and adults. Youth and families can follow up with Relate to learn more about chemical use and addiction, which can be a much needed resource given rates of addiction are increasing. Relate's outreach team can be a great resource to engage people in need during these difficult times, and response time is rather quick.

Relate Counseling Center in Minnetonka is a community mental health agency that is focused on the ever-changing needs of the community. They are able to help discern gaps in services and collaborate to fill those needs. They were able to provide telehealth client services in a seamless manner so as not to disrupt the needs of their clients. I think of Relate as a forward thinking organization yet mindful of what is right in front of them. The work they are doing in area schools is phenomenal and Relate is always looking for innovative ways to deliver services such as client-based small group settings to community presentations on specific topics.
