End of Peacetime Emergency
Minnesota Governor Tim Walz declared a peacetime emergency effective though September 11, 2020. At this time it is unknown if Govenor Walz will extend the emergency declaration beyond that date.
If you are registered with the MN Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy to provide telehealth services in Minnesota during the COVID-19 peacetime emergency, please begin preparations to discontinue services provided to clients located in Minnesota. This may include:
- Transitioning clients to a Minnesota-licensed behavioral health professional; or
- Apply for a MN Behavioral Health License.
The BBHT will notify telehealth registrants by email if there is an extension or confirmed end date to the peacetime emergency.
