We Are Here For You

Headway is here to empower people of all ages to live an emotionally healthy life – including you. Whether you’re dealing with a serious mental illness or the natural ups and downs of life, we believe you have the ability to live your life with purpose. Our therapy options are here to help the Twin Cities do that.

Why We're Here

We're a 50-year old therapy nonprofit serving the mental and emotional health needs of the greater Twin Cities metro area. We believe everyone has the ability to build and maintain themselves from the inside and live their life with purpose.

Everyone's experiences and goals are different, so we have a variety of programs and over 200 therapists, mental health workers, and staff to meet you where you are and tailor your therapy to your needs. If you begin with us in one area and need to add one or transition to another, we can help you make that change without needing to find a new organization.

We work with over a dozen insurance companies to keep things accessible: Aetna | Blue Cross Blue Shield | Cigna | Health Partners | Hennepin Health | Humana | MA | Medicaid | Optum | Preferred One | Tricare | UBH | UCare | United

Black Lives Matter

“For many of us, the pain, anger, fear, and trauma provoked by the killing of George Floyd is an everyday part of their lives. For others, there is an opportunity to empathize and awaken to the cancers of racism, dismissiveness, and inequality. We at Headway must live out our antiracist values and empower all people, regardless of identity.” - Pat Dale, Headway CEO

We believe our liberation is bound up with each other and that we all do better when each of us does better. We are here to listen and support.

Emotional Health During COVID-19

In this unprecedented time of risk to our physical health, we know the emotional health of many in our community is being negatively affected as well. Taking care of our emotional health during times of high stress and rapid change is especially important.

We are currently providing services in person at our locations as well as through telehealth.

What Our Clients Have Said

I've worked with Headway for over ten years and the quality of the services they provide to youth and their family has been excellent. The staff genuinely care about their clients and want them to be successful, and they hold their young clients accountable for their behavior.

Willie Bridges, Office of the Hennepin County Attorney

I just want to say thank you for the support provided by Headway. We have had our new full time staff, Liz, for a week and many positive outcomes are being felt building wide.

Shannon McParland, Principal, Sioux Trail Elementary

Our son cares about himself and others around him… He has regained hope and faith in life, and as a family, we have a huge increase in the positive interaction and time we share. Thank you for giving us so much.
