Providing Access to Healing (PATH) is a United Way of Sheboygan County program that helps provide confidential licensed mental health therapy in participating school districts throughout Sheboygan County. Partnered with Lakeshore Community Health Care, Mental Health America Lakeshore, and Ozaukee County Community Therapies, this school-based mental health program helps to create increased access to services for youth by removing financial and geographical barriers. Sheboygan County students in the PATH Program have experienced improved academic performance and social functioning and reduced suspensions, detentions, unexcused absences, and symptoms.
