Meet Mindy

Mindy Greiling served in the House of Representatives in Minnesota for 20 years, including 14 after her son was diagnosed with schizo-affective disorder in 1999. She initiated the first state bipartisan mental health caucus where legislators worked together to pass legislation, including allocating the most annual funding for mental health in Minnesota history up to that date. She has served on the national and state National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) boards and currently serves on the University of Minnesota Psychiatry Community Advisory Council.

Greiling has received over 80 awards, a quarter of them for her work to improve the mental health system.
