Earlier this year, Hennepin County Minnesota Sheriff Rich Stanek was privileged to be part of a group of law enforcement officials who met with Vice President Joseph Biden. At the meeting, Sheriff Stanek questioned Vice President Biden on the issue of mental illness. An outspoken advocate on the issue, Sheriff Stanek wants to equip local law officers in towns like Edina, MN to respond more appropriately to individuals with mental health issues. He has also advocated for the treatment of inmates housed in the county jail who suffer from mental illness.

Alternative and Holistic Mental Health Treatment Options

Identifying an individual’s mental health disorder and providing professional care for them are the beginnings of their recovery. There are also a number of alternative approaches that can be used to supplement and reinforce the care already being received:

  • Self-help groups. Informal group meetings where an individual can meet others with mental health issues, share experiences, learn from them, and receive support.
  • Nutrition. Making healthier choices of what foods and drinks are consumed. Vitamins and/or herbal supplements can also sometimes help augment treatment.
  • Pastoral counseling. Speaking with a trained religious counselor can be beneficial, especially for people of faith.
  • Animal therapy. Specially trained therapy animals are sometimes used to assist individuals with mental health disorders.
  • Expressive therapies. Art therapy, music therapy, or dance therapy gives individuals a creative outlet that can help them cope with symptoms while also expressing themselves.
