The shortage of quality mental health professionals and psychiatrists impacts both patient and provider access to psychiatric specialists. PAL is designed to help healthcare providers gain immediate and free access to mental health professionals and psychiatrists in Minnesota by providing consults, triage and referrals.

PAL is available Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.  Any healthcare provider can call for mental health triage and referral, or for a consultation with a Board Certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist regarding a patient. This is a free service provided by PrairieCare Medical Group through a grant from DHS.

To get more information or to schedule a consult, visit  www.mnpsychconsult.com or call 855-431-6468.

In response to the recent NRA statement that “Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane,” many physicians have signed petitions, written letters to the editor and used social media to draw attention to the vital role they play in reducing gun violence.

Check out a letter to the Washington Post from MNAAP Board Member Rachel Tellez, MD. Additionally, check out messages on social media from physicians and other health professionals with #thisisourlane

A number of MNAAP members cited gun violence as their top policy concern in the chapter’s recent all-member survey. The chapter will continue to monitor legislation at the state and federal level and advocate for policies that reduce gun violence.
