The stigma associated with certain illnesses such as substance abuse and mental health disorders can make health care practitioners hesitant to seek treatment. Confidential monitoring increases the likelihood that practitioners will seek treatment early - before clinical skills are compromised. And monitoring improves treatment compliance and successful outcomes. The Minnesota Health Professionals Services Program (HPSP) is charged with protecting the public by promoting early intervention, diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring for health professionals with potentially impairing conditions.  Monitoring services are available to over 200,000 health care professionals regulated or licensed by one of the Health Licensing Boards or the Department of Health.   View a list of eligible professions HPSP serves (PDF).


If you are concerned about yourself, a colleague, employee, or family member, call us at (651) 642-0487 and ask to speak to a case manager to learn more about our services.
