A new partnership was celebrated this week between a primary care provider and a mental health clinic.
An open house on Tuesday marked the new partnership between North Metro Pediatrics and the Lee Carlson Center for Mental Health and Well-Being. Lee Carlson opened their newest clinic right next to North Metro Pediatrics, and now they're able to offer convenient mental health services to patients who need it.
Mental health problems affect nearly one out of every five children. It's hoped that more children with mental health issues can be helped, early on, before they grow into bigger problems later in life.
