MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A new task force in Minnesota is aiming to help people who cannot part with their belongings.

Hoarding has shot into the spotlight in recent years, especially because of shows that air on cable networks. An estimated 15 million people across the country struggle with hoarding.

A new state task force has been created to help the estimated 10,000 Minnesotans who are affected by hoarding, and their families. The group consists of mental health professionals, home inspectors, professional organizers and more.

The task force is holding a news conference Thursday to explain more about how they plan to help.
