One of the important things that we have learned about hoarding is that a team approach is needed to properly deal with any hoarding situation. No 'one professional' can provide all the services and support that a hoarding individual needs.
The team of professionals might include some combination of:
social worker/case manager
Others may also be involved, such as a landlord, church pastor, junk hauler, handyman, cleaning service, or family/friends.
New numbers on the ground from people who help with hoarding situations now indicate that up to 5% of the population in the United States are hoarding at some level. That means in a community of 10,000 residents, up to 500 people could be hoarding.
Add to that number the people who also live in the same households, family and friends of the person who are hoarding, and their neighbors. That is how many people are affected by hoarding!
Hoarding disorder is a public health and safety issue.
As we build our resource lists, we want to cover the entire state of Minnesota. If your business already works in hoarded homes and you would like to be added to our resource lists, please come to a meeting and introduce yourself.
We would like to learn about what you do, and what your experiences are. It is important to us that you can support our mission statement and vision statement.
Hoarding is a mental health disorder, and those who struggle with it must be treated with respect and care.
On Sept. 28th, 2019 3546 people walked and raised over $430,000 for NAMI Minnesota (National Alliance on Mental Illness).
The NAMI Minnesota mission statement:
"NAMI Minnesota champions justice, dignity, and respect for all people affected by mental illnesses. Through education, support, and advocacy we strive to eliminate the pervasive stigma of mental illnesses, effect positive changes in the mental health system, and increase the public and professional understanding of mental illnesses."
The Minnesota Hoarding Task Force group walked together and Our team raised $420.00 for NAMI Minnesota. We are proud to be a part of this wonderful event to raise awareness of Mental Illness and support NAMI Minnesota.
September is Hoarding Awareness Month in Minnesota! Thank you Governor Tim Walz for helping to raise Awareness of Hoarding as a Mental Health Concern and the need for Support and Education in our communities.
We held a conference for anyone affected by hoarding behavior. Our conference featured a person who spoke about their personal experience with hoarding , a family member of a person who hoards and Wade Crandall, a Mental Health Therapist. These speakers were followed by a Q & A with a panel pictured here made up of our members who work in various fields working with people who hoard.
