**Mayo among hospitals seeking psychiatric housing**

MINNEAPOLIS — Joining Mayo Clinic’s previously announced effort, two other Minnesota hospitals want to establish short-term housing for adults with psychiatric illnesses amid a backlog in the state mental health system.

Like Mayo, Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis has made plans to develop housing for patients who may be ready for discharge from the hospital but need more therapy before returning to their own homes. Regions Hospital in St. Paul is considering developing a 16-bed residential treatment center that will help patients after they’re discharged from area hospitals.

The new “recovery homes” will serve more than 400 adults with mental illnesses every year. They’re expected to relieve pressure on hospitals that have become overwhelmed by a surge of patients suffering mental health crises.

Mayo Clinic is partnering with a non-profit organization to build and manage two residential houses by its Saint Marys hospital campus for patients with mental illnesses. The Sylvan C. Herman Foundation, which created the ClearView Communities in Frederick, Md., is driving the project as well as financing it. The plan is to build two houses on Mayo Clinic land along 14th Avenue Southwest, across from the Saint Marys Campus.
