The Red Lake Nation's Pediatric Mental Health Program (PMHP) is located at the Mino Bimaadiziwin Wellness Clinic in Minneapolis. The PMHP provides culturally informed mental health services to native children zero to 21 years of age with any tribal affiliation. Our providers help to
support a wide variety of concerns including but not limited to; school anxiety, grief, history of trauma,
family stress or depression. Our approach is to provide support to the entire family system; with a focus
on culture and healing. The PMHP's Anishinaabeg name, "Aanikoobijiganag Inawendiwin" is broken
down into two words, "Aanikoobijiganag" which means ancestors and "Inawendiwin" which means
relational accountability or interconnection.
Aanikoobijiganag Inawendiwin describes the intention of our program, that when we heal ourselves, we
heal our ancestors. In doing so, we also heal our families, children and communities.
Services: housing case management, targeted mental health case management, mental health
assessment and referrals, and cultural activities and coordination.

Recipients of this service receive a grant (GRH) through the state of Minnesota. The Red Lake Housing
Support Program manages qualifying individuals’ grants to assist them with paying rent. For some
individuals, Red Lake may also pay some of their utilities or other expenses. As part of the program, Red
Lake Housing also provides housing case management services to help individuals maintain their
housing. This may include advocacy, life skills training, inspections, connection to community resources,
coordination with other providers, as well as other needed services.
Adult Mental Health Targeted Case Management (TCM) is also available to residents of the housing
program. This service provides intensive, culturally-sensitive support to assist individuals with serious
and persistent mental illness (SPMI). TCM helps participants gain access to necessary services, including
educational, medical, dental, social, vocational, cultural and other services. TCM provides assessment
and planning for each client to create an individual community support plan (ICSP), which includes the
client’s individual goals. TCM will make referrals to community resources and mental health and other
services that support achievement of these goals. TCM also provides ongoing monitoring of client
engagement with services and resources, with an emphasis on coordinating care with all members of
the client’s treatment team.
Cultural Coordination/Programming is also available for residents of the Mino Bimaadiziwin
apartments. This service provides clients with opportunities to connect to cultural activities that support
recovery. The Cultural Coordinators educate and assist clients with accessing cultural programming and
activities happening within their community, as well as provide 1:1 and group sessions at Mino
Bimaadiziwin. While most of the programming at Mino Bimaadiziwin is focused on supporting the clients
of the Housing Support program, some activities are open to the larger community and public.
