“I have been living with mental illnesses since I was 13... hospitalized more than 10 times since I was 19. After being in therapy for the last six months, I feel more stable than I have in my whole life... I love what they have done for me.”

2011 Annual Report

Last year, 2011, was a year of change and growth for Headway. Not only did our services expand to reach thousands more people in the Twin Cities, we changed our name after 41 years to better represent what we have become and where we are headed.

We are pleased to announce our 2011 Annual Report is now available on our website, www.headway.org. It highlights our growth, shows our financial performance, and shares some impressive facts about the impact of the work we do in and around the Twin Cities metro. The report also includes some firsthand stories and observations about the ways we make a difference - the small and large victories -- every day.

We encourage you to take a moment to look at our report- we think you will find it an interesting and inspirational read because, much like the mission of Headway itself, it is about the people we serve and how well we serve them.

Inside the 2011 Annual Report,

you will find.....

.....interesting 2011 facts, including:

  • We provided $300,000 worth of free and reduced services to area individuals and families
  • We provided 30,000 hours of mental health services to families across the metro
  • Our services reached 13,847 individuals and families throughout the Twin Cities

.... inspirational 2011 stories, including:

"In a voicemail from the mother of a very difficult, often violent client of mine, she explained that recently her daughter had started to get upset, yelling and climbing a tree. But then something changed and the little girl said, "I want to try calming down like (my therapist) taught me." She started 'blowing out her birthday candles' like I had showed her to calm herself. Her mother said she settled right down, got in the car and was fine after that. I cried (just a little bit) with joy when I heard this message."

"My client's mother grabbed my hand, pulled me into her and gave me a hug. She stated how happy she was her daughter has been coming to me as she was getting her 'old' daughter back."
