Providing Access To Healing (PATH)

Lakeshore Community Health Care partnered with the Sheboygan Area School District, United Way, and Mental Health America to offer school-based counseling services. Providing Access to Healing (PATH) offers school based behavioral and mental health services designed to support students within the school day and remove stigma and barriers to accessing care. We're able to provide a more comprehensive approach for students needing additional support at school by working together with both the family and the school.
