Outpatient Mental Health Clinic Appointments

To request an appointment, call Northwestern Mental Health Center at 218.281.3940 or toll-free at 1.800.418.7326. A referral is not required. Many individuals are self- or family-referred, while others visit us at the recommendation of a doctor, friend, school, or other providers.


At our Crookston clinic location, we provide same-day therapy/counseling appointments (for new and returning clients who haven’t been seen in the past 6 months) and prescriber/medication services (for new clients only) without an appointment. Walk-in appointments are on a first-come, first-served basis during our Open Access hours.
