Mothers and families struggling with the emotional and psychological challenges of pregnancy and parenting will celebrate Hennepin Healthcare’s groundbreaking of its Redleaf Center for Family Healing. Patient families, including kids and Hennepin County Commissioner District 3 Marion Greene will help break ground at the ceremony at 11:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 13, outside Hennepin Healthcare on Chicago and Sixth Street.
The Center is a $30 million endeavor initiated by a $10 million transformational gift from the Lynne & Andrew Redleaf Foundation and a $2.25 million donation from the Pohlad family. The families will be honored at this event. The Center is projected to be completed in 2020.
One in seven new parents experience depression and other anxiety conditions – the most common complications of childbirth. The Redleaf Center for Family Healing will serve as a safe haven for struggling parents and families in need of help.
Through parent-child, integrative and resilience-promoting practices – and in partnership with communities most impacted by health inequities – the Redleaf Center will build parent capacity with a new model of care.
Support will be provided in the form of mental health and clinical services, a holistic nutrition and teaching kitchen, childcare services, integrative health services, and a family healing network.
