Health Officials Gather Feedback in Duluth

The Minnesota Department of Human Services made a stop in Duluth Thursday to gain some insight.

The agency gathered feedback from law enforcement, providers, community members and other stakeholders about the services offered for people with mental illness, substance abuse and disabilities.

Officials tell FOX 21 they want to know what’s working and what’s not to help them prepare for legislative sessions next year and beyond.

“We want the state to be able to provide the services needed that the community providers aren’t providing, to make sure that we are adequately caring for all persons in the state,” said Wade Brost with Minnesota Department of Human Services.

The DHS will travel to five other regions.

They will be in Bemidji on Friday.
