TSA provides two types of Mental Health Services in Schools; School-linked Behavioral Health Services (SLBH) and School Based Mental Health services. SLBH services are funded by insurance coverage and/or grant support which is funded by the MN Department of Human Services. TSA SLBH service providers are located in offices at the schools in Pine and Chisago counties. School Based Mental Health Services are routinely provided by TSA staff members at schools within the districts of Forest Lake, Wyoming, St. Paul and Anoka and are funded through insurance or private pay.
Service Description: Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health services are for infants, toddlers, and young children with impairing mental health symptoms and/or developmental needs. These services allow for the assessment and treatment of infants and young children. The assessment process includes a DC:0-5 Diagnostic Assessment. Additional psychotherapeutic services may include Family Psychotherapy, Child-Parent Psychotherapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and/or in-home Family Skills services.
Description of Services: TSA provides professional mental health services to individuals and families of all ages. Our clinical staff come from the fields of psychology, clinical social work, and marriage and family therapy and are licensed professionals and/or have advanced graduate training in a mental health field.
Services generally start with a comprehensive assessment to address presenting problems/concerns. This helps to identify appropriate recommendations for service needs. Psychotherapy is one of the services that is most commonly provided in our outpatient setting. This refers to a range of treatments that can help with mental health problems, emotional challenges, and some psychiatric disorders. Psychotherapy aims to assist individuals to better understand their feelings and to provide tools to help individuals cope with difficult situations in a more adaptive way. Psychotherapy services can assist people experiencing a wide range of mental health concerns. Whether you and/or a family member are wanting help coping with individual or family concerns or assistance in enhancing your relationships with others, our professional therapists are committed to helping clients find meaningful, hope-filled lives.
Program Description: Community Based Skills groups are an opportunity for clients to learn and practice important emotional and behavioral coping, social, communication and daily living skills within the context of a group setting with peers of a similar age. Oftentimes, skills groups are an important addition to individual therapy and provide an opportunity for youth to practice skills that will help them cope with various mental health challenges they are facing and working through in therapy.
Description of Services: We believe the best way to provide services to a child is through strengthening and empowering the family as a unit. This is the heartbeat of the philosophy of In-Home Family Based Services (FBS). FBS services are unique in that most often the treatment is offered in the client’s homes. FBS services are designed to respond to each family’s unique needs, therefore, the treatment approach is tailored to fit individual families.
Overview of Services: TSA’s Deaf, Deafblind, and Hard of Hearing Mental Health Program provides culturally affirmative mental health services to children (birth to 22 years), who are deaf, deafblind, or hard of hearing and their families; and who are experiencing difficulties due to emotional or behavioral disorder(s). These mental health services include: comprehensive diagnostic assessment, individual psychotherapy, family psychotherapy, family psychoeducation, and Children’s Therapeutic Services and Supports (CTSS), a flexible package of mental health services for children who require varying therapeutic and rehabilitative levels of intervention and combine psychotherapy (individual, family, group) with skills training (individual, family, group) and crisis assistance to help strengthen the emotional, behavioral, and social functioning of children and their families.
The therapists in the deaf and hard of hearing program have a broad range of understanding about the physical and mental health challenges and needs of children who have mild to profound hearing losses. They understand how these needs influence behavior, school performance, family life, and social relationships. They are well versed in addressing communication needs and language barriers. Therapists in the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Program are fluent in American Sign language (ASL) and are familiar with Deaf culture.
Therapeutic Services Agency, Inc provides Diagnostic Assessments, Psychological Evaluations and Specialized Assessments. Diagnostic assessments are required before a client can receive mental health services as they assist with determining therapeutic treatment needs and eligibility for specific services. Psychological Evaluations provide a more in-depth assessment of a client’s emotional, behavioral & psychological presentation. The Specialized Assessments TSA provides focus on the needs of the children in the context of a family unit.
Sometimes families experiencing internal strife or families involved with Child Protection Services need supervised visitation services. TSA provides this service specific to individual family need, as requested. This service may be provided in a community setting (such as a public park), appropriate family home, TSA office or other agreed upon setting. Safety is a must and all parties must agree to primary supervised visitation rules. Supervised visitation services are focused on best meeting the child(ren)’s needs. The adults visiting the children need to cooperate with the professional providing the supervised visitation service with an emphasis on safety, age appropriate interactions with the child, child-centered activity and overall child well being in their experience of visitation.
Therapeutic Services Agency’s professional staff provide training sessions tailored to meet your group’s training needs. We provide training to mental health service providers, foster parents, adoptive families, GAL’s, County Social Workers, etc. We provide training on the following topics and may also develop additional training workshops in response to your requests.

For nearly 40 years we have been advocating for and serving the LGBTQ+ community, those living with HIV, and all folks facing barriers to equitable healthcare. Since our formation through the Minnesota AIDS Project and Rainbow Health Initiative merger—and later the acquisition of Training to Serve—we have continued to grow and identify new ways to commit to our mission.
These past few years have challenged and strengthened this unified team in ways we could have never expected. We decided another change was needed to continue moving forward: a name that grounded us in our legacy and proudly proclaimed our purpose.
While our name has changed, our purpose has not. We are as dedicated as ever to working for equitable health care access and outcomes for people who experience injustice at the intersection of health status and identity. We center individuals and communities at risk of and living with HIV or facing barriers to equitable health care access and outcomes because of their identity as gender, sexual, and/or racial minorities.
- We help people navigate healthcare systems by breaking down barriers, particularly LGBTQ+ people and those affected by HIV.
- We work to End HIV by building on our four-decade legacy of providing the most comprehensive array of Minnesota AIDS Project’s wrap-around services for people with HIV. As a disease of injustice, the only way to end HIV is to end health disparities.
- We offer unique and specialized mental and chemical health services by and for the communities we serve. Our care is trauma-informed, harm-reduction based, sex-positive, and meets people where they are. We turn no one away for inability to pay.
- We work to empower people on the margins with relevant information, support, and connection to resources that allow them to lead healthier lives. Our legacy of four decades fighting HIV and LGBTQ+ health disparities has given us insight and experience that we can bring to the broader movement for health equity.
- We educate and train providers about how to deliver better care for the diversity of LGBTQ+ and HIV communities through a lens of intersectionality.
We are Rainbow Health Minnesota, and we will do whatever it takes for each and every person to be cared for and respected.
We bring our purpose to life in two primary ways:
- Directly serving and supporting the needs of people who need help with compassionate care that breaks down barriers to better health.
- Fighting for better health systems for those erased and excluded by educating care providers, policymakers, and one another.
The strategic actions we are taking to fulfill our purpose include:
- Work to End HIV.
- Expand our training and systems change enterprise.
- Respond to the growing needs of older LGBTQ+ and HIV communities.
- Increase community engagement and empowerment.
- Explore targeted LGBTQ+ direct care services.
- Strengthen operational and financial stability.

Our work is based on the foundation and belief that suicide is preventable and everyone has a role to play in preventing suicide.
