WHAT We Are Going To Do:

Woking together we will strengthen teh 5 pillars of resiliency: Self Awareness, Self Care, Positive Relationships, Mindfulness, and Purpose.


We will build thriving individuals and communities that will: 


- REALIZE who they are and how they want to be seen


- RECOGNIZE how to take care of themselves and others in order to function at their best even in challenging times 


- RESPOND by building relationships with all people by not t and intentionally living in the moment


- RESIST re-traumatization by building on their passions and finding purpose. 

HOW We Are Going To Get There: 

Positive Life Experiences 

- Being in nurturing supportive relationships


-Living, playing and learning in safe, stable, protective and equitable environments. 

-Engaging and sharing in constructive social/civic activities that develop a sense of connectedness

- Developing social and emotional competencies

By strengthening these pillars, we in turn, become more resilient. Instead of experiencing an overwhelming downward spiral when we encounter stress in our lives, these five pillars work together to lift us up out of the chaos we are feeling. Obtaining and maintaining these skills takes practice.

The ultimate goals under a System of Care in a community is to increase collaboration across organizations and professionals providing children’s mental health services, increase family and youth voice and decision-making power within the system, and ensuring that children’s mental health services and systems are culturally responsive to meet the needs of the community. 

A System of Care is a framework on how to provide services, a guide for how systems should work, and meet the unique needs of their communities.    

Sherburne County System of Care was established from the collaborative work with BRDIGES, our Children’s Mental Health Collaborative. 

Vision: Children and families will have improved quality of life and a productive future because of systems that provide behavioral health in a collaborative approach.

Mission: To continually improve systems that promote optimum behavioral health supports by ensuring a community-based approach to youth-guided, family driven supports and services.
