Suggestions When Obtaining Community-Based Mental Health Services
Mental Health (or Behavioral Health Services) may be funded in part by private insurance or insurance through medical assistance (Medicaid/Forward Health/Badger-Care).
Have your insurance information ready when you contact a provider.
You may need a referral from your primary care provider.
If the provider you contact is booked out quite a ways, ask to be put on their cancellation list (they will call you when other patients cancel and try to get you in sooner).
Finding resources in the community can be an overwhelming task. While there is an abundance of resources, locating just the right one can be confusing and time consuming. We're hopeful that this page will help you in your pursuit of locating appropriate resources. If you continue to have trouble, please contact your school counselor and we will do our best to assist you.

Resources For Talking With Your Child About Grief
Death is difficult for all of us to understand and for children/adolescents, it's particularly hard to grasp. Children and adolescents' reactions to death vary greatly. Their grief may be expressed as sadness, fear anger and even silliness. Children/adolescents may fear the loss of another loved one and may want to remain closer to parents and/or other family members for a while. Although understanding of death may be limited, no child is too young to feel and respond to loss and sadness. Children and adolescents need the support of warm, caring adults who allow them to experience their grief.
The links below offer some resources to help you understand and support a grieving child or adolescent.
