Volunteers sought for Local Mental Health Advisory Council in southern St. Louis County

St. Louis County is seeking volunteers to serve on the Local Mental Health Advisory Council serving the Duluth and surrounding area in the southern part of the county. Ideal candidates include anyone with lived experience and diverse experiences and perspectives, a loved one with lived experience, and those in the profession or who do volunteer work supporting others.


The advisory council started in 2020 with the goal of bringing together diverse perspectives on mental health in order to improve mental health services in our communities. The group works to identify existing resources, and provide recommendations to St. Louis County Public Health and Human Services regarding changes, additions and improvements needed to local mental health services for children and adults.


The application deadline is December 17. The Local Mental Health Advisory Council meets on the third Thursday of each month from 4:30-6 p.m. Advisory council members are asked to commit to serve on the council for two years. There is a separate advisory council serving the northern part of St. Louis County.
