Trisha Erpelding

Education Program Coordinator & Mindful Instructor
MHA Office:  920-458-3951 ext. 102



Trisha has had a passion for working with children and youth for as long as she can remember. She graduated with a degree in social work from UW-Whitewater (Go Warhawks!) in 2008, and decided to continue her education by. pursuing a Master's degree, which she earned in 2016. As the Education Program Coordinator at MHA, Trisha is able to pursue her dream of working with youth by educating students in Sheboygan County about a variety of mental health topics, including awareness, prevention, and stigma elimination. As a mindful classroom instructor, Trisha is able to share mindfulness with students in our area, teaching them valuable skills in order to focus, stay calm, self-regulate, and boost self-esteem. Trisha lives with her husband in the Sheboygan area with their son, Hayden, and two fur-babies.


For my mental health I...

 spend time with my husband and son, family, friends, my dogs Madison and Pig, and read as often as I can. (I am currently making my way through the "Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge," a list of almost 350 books that were featured on the show, The Gilmore Girls!) I also practice mindfulness- a way to calm down, relax, and focus on the present moment. Listening to music and attending concerts are also favorite hobbies of mine. 


One thing on my bucket list is...

 in addition to my book challenge above, world travel is also at the top of my list- I would love to visit Hawaii, Italy, Greece, Japan, and especially Australia! 


A favorite Sheboygan County spot of mine is...

 I enjoy spending time at Lake Michigan and riding my bike on the Old Plank Road Trail. I also love to visit the delicious restaurants the Sheboygan area has to offer- we are so lucky to have so many great places to eat in our community!

I like working at MHA because...

 I enjoy connecting with others and making a difference in the community. In my position as the Youth Educator, I get to pursue my passion of working with children by getting to work closely with the kiddos and young adults in our community!
