Organizations We Partner With

NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.

Founded in 1955, the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) is the largest membership organization of professional social workers in the world, with more than 120,000 members.

Formed in 1885, the Minnesota Sheriffs’ Association consists of the 87 Minnesota Sheriffs and their staff. These agencies represent a diversity of regions from agricultural and wilderness, to metropolitan. Each Sheriff had their own, unique situation, duties, responsibilities, and yet many of the problems they encounter are common to all.

As an occupational regulatory agency, POST is responsible for licensing over 10,500 active peace officers and 109 active part-time peace officers.  The board has the legislative authority to adopt administrative rules that have the force and effect of law, rules that enable the board to establish policies and standards to which all licensees must adhere.

The Association was formed as a fraternal organization and Secretary George Roope of the Austin P.D. described one of the immediate benefits of membership as, “one or more get-togethers a year where we exchange experiences and ideas.”  The exchange of experience and ideas remains one of the greatest benefits of the Association today.Today, our Association provides services, training and programs that are designed to fulfill the goals of a small group of dedicated chiefs who first met in the office of the Minneapolis Police Chief in 1954. So many things have changed – but the core values remain the same.

The mission of Mental Health Resources is to foster hope, health and recovery for people affected by mental illness. With state hospitals closing in the 1970s, adults with serious mental illness began to live independently in the community. Case management and care coordination were born out of the need for community-based services for these individuals. Mental Health Resources (MHR), then known as Sharing Life in the Community, was incorporated in 1976 as a pilot project to holistically serve people with serious and persistent mental illness in the community. Throughout the past 40 years, MHR and many other agencies have provided these services, acting as first line contact for adults who need ongoing support.

Here at Addiction Resource, our goal is to provide the most trusted content for individuals and their families who are researching addiction, substance abuse, and treatment options. We strive to offer a wealth of information that is both useful and completely accurate in our quest to help individuals seek recovery.
