PATH COMMUNITY PARTNERS
If you believe your child could benefit from PATH, reach out to your child’s school counselor. If your child attends a school that is not partnered with PATH, reach out to Mental Health America Lakeshore or Wisconsin 211 and they will be able to help you navigate finding a therapist that best fits your family’s needs.
