crisis information

Education is a core value of Mental Health America in Sheboygan County. By providing education and prevention programming to youth in our community, we share knowledge about the importance of mental health and the warning signs of mental illness at an early age B4Stage4. It is our hope that, with this knowledge, more people will know when to reach out for help for themselves or a loved one, reducing stigma and saving lives in our community.

PATH Providing Access to Healing

United Way of Sheboygan County PATH School based Therapy

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 in Sheboygan County, 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 reduce suspensions, detentions, unexcused absences and symptoms.
