ITR to Unveil New Mental Health Counseling and Training Clinic and Lab

NEWS-remodelWe at the Institute for Translational Research in Children’s Mental Health (ITR) are excited to announce an affiliation between the University of Minnesota and the Family Innovations Counseling and Training Center, which will be located at ITR. This affiliation will allow for the provision of evidence-based mental health services for children and families in a convenient location while providing hands-on training for students preparing for a career in mental health.

The affiliation with the clinic serves ITR’s goals of translating discoveries in children’s mental health research into practice, and providing training in evidence-based practices that students often have difficulty finding for their practicum experience.

See the announcement below from Family Innovations for more information.

Family Innovations is excited to announce the opening of a new counseling and training center in Minneapolis. Located on University of Minnesota property on Washington Avenue, just blocks off of Interstate 35-W, with free parking and with a bus stop directly in front of the clinic, it is easily accessible to people living or working in downtown Minneapolis, and in the surrounding communities. With its location on the corner of Washington Avenue and 11th Avenue, just three blocks north of the new US Bank Stadium, near the Depot, and only blocks from the Hennepin County Government Center, it is convenient for commuters coming into or leaving downtown Minneapolis before or after work, students at the University of Minnesota, and for families and individuals living in and around this area. Daytime and evening appointments are available.

Family Innovations has been providing quality mental health care in the Twin Cities area since 2001. We currently have eleven outpatient clinics in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. We also serve the nine county metropolitan area with home based mental health services to children and families, and for adults. Family Innovations is known for its excellent care to clients of all ages, including children, families, and to those with relationship concerns.

Our Minneapolis clinic will have fully licensed mental health therapists to work with individuals and families, including children, teenagers, and adults. Additionally, through an affiliation agreement with the University of Minnesota, it provides clinical training for University students enrolled in health sciences programs in the College of Human Education and Development. Their work will typically be observed and supported by other experienced and licensed professionals. Therapists at Family Innovations are highly trained, and many have additional expertise in a variety of Evidence-Based Practices for either children or adults. A core service provided at the Minneapolis clinic will be therapy for trauma exposed children and teenagers.

Serving clients with genuine concern and compassion are hallmarks of Family Innovations’ therapists, stemming from a deep-seated belief that all persons have unique value and intrinsic worth.

With a commitment to continually improve in all areas of client service and experience, Family Innovations strives to fulfill its mission: to restore hope and healing to those who seek our help to be stronger, healthier individuals and families.
