The Hamm Clinic has completed our move! In recent months, we have been through a comprehensive assessment of our space, prioritizing the creation of a trauma-responsive, culturally responsive space for our clients. We imagined a space which is easily accessible to all with free parking and an environment in which our clients can feel comfortable and safer. With the support of our Board of Directors, we have moved to a new space in St. Paul, just across the river.

We will continue to serve our St. Paul community using our Healing Together™ Model of Care in a physical environment aligned with our clients’ recovery needs. Our space is comprehensive, welcoming to all, and nurturing.

Please consider joining us in this effort by donating to our capital campaign. Your gift will complete funding which designed the best space possible for our client’s needs. You will help us to fulfill a vision in which our clinical team has all the tools available to ensure our clients receive the high-quality interdisciplinary mental health care we have been known for over the past 67 years.

I look forward to updating you on our progress. Thank you for helping us to continue to grow! We cannot do it without you.

Gratefully,

Linda Ewing

Interim Executive Director

Client Centered Care

Imagine creating a trauma-informed, culturally responsive, and completely client centered space for Muska and all Hamm clients to feel comfortable, safer, and secure.
Imagine you are Muska, a 34-year-old Afghan mother and business owner. As you reflect on the long and difficult three-month journey to the United States with your husband and three children, you realize that you could not have anticipated what it would be like to leave all you had built behind – at a moment’s notice – to flee the Taliban. Every day your heart aches as you hold back tears for your friends and family who did not get out. While staying at a Minnesota hotel, you complete a behavioral health screen with a therapist from Hamm Clinic. You learn that you might have depression and posttraumatic stress and they offer you ongoing care. They want to help you heal in your way—centered on your culture, language, and individual and family needs.
Imagine you are Raymond, a 55-year-old Emergency Room nurse. You have been serving patients with COVID for over 21 months. You are exhausted and although you experienced depression and anxiety as a nursing student, you have not struggled with your mental health in your adult life. You feel disconnected and irritable, and now have repeated panic attacks—5 or more times per week. You admit to yourself that you are experiencing secondary trauma and burnout and that you cannot continue coping on your own. You have considered therapy, but you have shame about your symptoms and seeking help. You are used to being the helper. You are fearful of getting a diagnosis which could affect your work or your nursing license. You call Hamm and learn that they are offering a support group for frontline workers which does not require a diagnosis. You will be with colleagues experiencing the same things in a caring and confidential setting.
Imagine you are Annette, a 44-year-old survivor of domestic violence and childhood abuse. You have been to therapy many times before, starting when you were removed from your home as a middle schooler because it was not safe for you. While therapy has been helpful, you realize that the time has come for a comprehensive approach to the “band-aid adapting” you have used for years to cope. You call Hamm Clinic and learn that it will be much easier to get to your first appointment: there will not be the usual overwhelming paperwork to complete, the packet invites you to fill out as much or as little as you are comfortable with—until you can be assisted by a Hamm staffer. You learn that even though the trauma of childhood abuse is harder to treat, Hamm therapists have the training and experience needed to help survivors heal from complex trauma.
