Nexus-Gerard Family Healing is located on a beautiful 12-acre campus in Austin, MN, that once served as the Hormel Estate. The site has retained many of its homelike charms, including the family living room, cozy bedrooms, entry drive, gardens, and trees. A nature preserve is adjacent to the property, and wild turkeys and deer are often seen roaming the grounds.
Nexus-Gerard provides an array of individualized mental health services for boys, girls, teens, adults, and families. Nexus-Gerard’s history began in the 1960s, when it was founded as the Gerard School, a treatment site for the care of children. Throughout the years, it has been known as Gerard of Minnesota, Gerard Treatment Programs, Gerard Academy, and, today, Nexus-Gerard Family Healing — but it has always retained its focus of caring for children and families.
Nexus-Gerard has demonstrated excellence in its treatment approach and was awarded Provider of the Year by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in 2012. In 2015, Nexus-Gerard opened an outpatient program to serve children, teens, adults, and families in the community in answer to County and School needs for mental health services in the area.
