YouthLink provides a safe and supportive refuge for young people who are homeless or at risk for becoming homeless. YouthLink is also the host site for the Youth Opportunity Center, uniting community partners who provide services to homeless young people under one roof with the aim to provide a comprehensive array of services and to make them more accessible for people who do not possess the resources to support mobility. Clients can come to YouthLink to satisfy their immediate needs—with a hot meal, a shower, and clean clothes—or to address larger issues with its intervention services. An onsite medical clinic helps youth access health-care services including STD and pregnancy testing, birth control, immunizations, and mental-health counseling. Additionally, YouthLink helps its clients succeed in school by offering intensive case management for students enrolled in Minneapolis public schools, GED tutoring, and an independent-living skills program.

Despite the unhealthy habits thrust upon humans throughout their lives, each person harbors innate health-conscious practices at the core. At least that's the operating philosophy at Achievement Associates Health Coaching. The health coaches there don't force clients to adopt new behaviors; they just unearth healthy urges that already exist. They accomplish this by following the multiple holistic health modalities (MHHM) model. This approach calls for a completely personalized plan built upon realistic, actionable changes to one's lifestyle based upon an assessment of problem areas.
Psychotherapy, counseling, and mediation may fall under the same umbrella, but the staff at Girard Psychological Services regards them as separate treatment methods. Whereas psychotherapy slowly works through the kinks of mental and emotional disorders to relieve their symptoms, counseling simply offers advice to a conflicted client. Mediation is able to help build bridges so parties who are at odds can reach a peaceful resolution. Each of theses psychological services are available at Girard Psychological Services.
