Mental Health and Resources Page

Minnesota Furs goal is always to educate and support our community. The effects of COVID-19, work, and overall societal events has created substantial mental health burdens, so we created this page. But, this page will stay after these effects fade. The Minnesota Furs community is all-inclusive and with that comes the baggage of difference. The difference of race, gender identity, creed, and ethnicity. We want everyone to be their best selves, and sometimes that support comes from leaning on each other or through professional help.

If you want to talk to someone on the board, reach out to us.

Help us! Please forward any resource contacts to communications. Or, just tell us that, “Hey, you need to fix this link.”
