About Us

Brief History

The People Project sprung from the mental well-being workgroup of the ReThink Mental Health Initiative of Cass and Clay Counties. ReThink Mental Health was formed after the 2013 Greater Fargo Moorhead Community Health Needs Assessment identified mental health as a priority health issue, and community leaders agreed to work together to rethink the fragmented, crisis driven service system, focus more on prevention, and create a community that flourishes.

Our focus on mental well-being comes from our belief that just as physical health is more than the absence of disease; mental health is more than the absence of mental illness. Numerous studies have shown that we can apply tools to retain our minds to focus on the positive and improve our wellbeing. We can build greater social connections, improve sleep and immune function, and enhance memory. The tools are simple… and life changing.
