Bridgeview Community Support Program is a drop-in center for adults living with serious and persistent mental illness.

Bridgeview needs your help!

We've moved into a new location. It's twice the size. It has an open layout with plenty of light. And, it has multiple areas for our members to relax and socialize.

What's missing is a kitchen to prepare meals for the 40-50 members who eat lunch at Bridgeview Monday-Thursday each week.

Many of our members are on limited budgets. Oftentimes their lunchtime meal at Bridgeview is their only meal that day.

You can help provide meals for Bridgeview members by making a financial donation.

Donate online to the right of this page.

Or, pledge your financial support to Patty at 763-230-7836 and follow up with a check:

More about Bridgeview:

Each year, 400+ Bridgeview members living with serious psychiatric disorders find camaraderie and support in a warm, inviting setting that promotes:

  • social interaction and activities
  • psychosocial rehabilitation
  • expression and healing through an award-winning art program
  • and ultimately - wellness, health & recovery from mental illness

Members also have access to a mental health and wellness library and free transportation to and from Bridgeview.

About serious and persistent mental illness:

Many of those living with psychiatric disabilites say the stigma associated with their illness is as distressing as the symptoms themselves.

The stigmatization not only prevents them from interacting with others, but may prevent them from seeking treatment, exacerbating their symptoms.

Bridgeview allows members to share their experiences, socialize, offer support, and help each other find new ways to cope.
