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.
