Our goals include:

  • Prevent suicide by building awareness within our community

Our current Mental Health Task Force initiatives include:

Website and Brochure: Our brochure lists all area mental health service providers and is available throughout our community. Our website provides listings of local mental health and AODA providers, links to provider websites, basic mental health information, and crisis assistance via a local hotline

The “Back-of-the-Door Campaign” our innovative program designed to raise awareness about mental health and reduce the stigma of seeking help by placing eye-catching posters on the backs of bathroom doors or other locations in businesses, hospitals, schools, and social service organizations.

QPR Training: QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer-- 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide. We have provided QPR training to dozens of area organizations and schools.

Suicide Prevention: With assistance from Mental Health America of Wisconsin, the Mental Health Task Force has developed and implemented programming for youth suicide prevention

Healthy Beginnings: The Mental Health Task Force took the lead in developing this program that provides no-fee early intervention mental health services for home and school. This program is supported by a grant from the Osceola Community Health Foundation.
