Crisis services are a critical piece of the mental health system. During Mental Health Month this May, the Minnesota Department of Human Services is highlighting services that get people in crisis the help they need, when they need it. One of 5 Minnesotans face mental illness each year, and one in 25 people live with a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Fortunately, there are more treatments, services and community support available, and many people with mental illness can and do recover.
