You don’t have to handle life on your own. Difficult life experiences, trauma, grief and loss, accidents, abuse, chemical imbalances, or harmful environments can create mental conditions that left unaddressed create larger issues. There’s no shame and seeking help does not mean you are not “strong enough,” and it can be dangerous to “power through” and not treat mental health risks. Avera is here to support your mental health.

The Upper Midwest’s leader for confidential, personalized, family-centered care, Avera treats you as a whole person.
