On Tuesday July 31st, Lee Carlson Center (LCC) and North Metro Pediatrics (NMP) celebrated almost a year a partnership and the opening of our Coon Rapids location with an Open House and Ribbon Cutting!
Our partnership, which officially launched in November 2017, allows easy access to mental health service providers without the need for children and their families to go to an entirely different location.
LCC therapists are now actively working with North Metro Pediatrics (NMP) to help bridge the divide between physical and emotional health. With our Coon Rapids satellite clinic across the side walk from NMP, our therapists are able to provide services within their clinic, or at the LCC office. This connection ensures a warm hand-off between the primary care and mental health providers.
We had a great time at our Coon Rapids Open House and feel so lucky to have a community partner like NMP!
A big LCC thank you to all who attended, especially to Twin Cities North Chamber of Commerce and Metro North Chamber of Commerce for your support and commemorating the day with ribbon cutting.
As well as, Sun Focus for this great news article and Coon Rapids Community Television Network (CTN) for the featured news clip!
Community is at the core of what we do at LCC, and we wouldn’t be able to do it with out the irreplaceable support given to us.
