History

Hiawatha Valley Mental Health Center was established in 1964 by a group of concerned citizens and government officials of Houston, Wabasha and Winona counties. The group recognized the importance and effectiveness of community based programming, action and support as the movement to bring mental health services to people in their home communities gained momentum. The organization opened its doors in Winona in September 1965.
