What's New

Our 2018 School Supply Drive is on!

Help us stock 200+ backpacks to disperse to kids in need throughout the Twin Cities – and help them feel confident and ready for their school year. 

You can donate via Amazon, or drop off wish list items at our Richfield or Golden Valley locations.

All donations are greatly appreciated and truly help kids start the school year off right! 


"My staff (at Sioux Trail Elementary) have been sharing about Headway's training sessions. Teachers come back from the trainings excited to try new strategies and they have new understanding regarding mental health issues. This is making a difference in their classrooms and helping them relate to students when they are struggling."

Emily has been with Headway since August, 2018 and has worked in human services since 2013. She is currently pursuing a Master of Social Work degree at Augsburg University, and has past experience working in residential treatment, day treatment, and school settings. As an intern within our school-based therapy program, she builds upon her clinical skills by working with elementary school-age students. "As an intern, I apply what I am learning in school directly to my client relationships. I advocate for students within the school system and help them build skills through individualized therapy sessions," she says.

Outside of work, Emily enjoys the outdoors by camping, kayaking, skiing, and exploring; her happy place is the shores of Lake Superior. She loves traveling to places with vast mountains, oceans, or other natural wonders. She also enjoys spending time with family, friends, and her dogs and cat.
