Mental Health

PATH Counseling PATH (Providing Access to Healing) is a program which breaks down barriers for students to receive mental health counseling. PATH is a partnership between the United Way of Sheboygan County, Ozaukee Community Therapies, and the Howards Grove School District. PATH is unique in that it allows students to receive mental health counseling right at school during the school day. The PATH program may also provide financial assistance for students whom this may be a barrier.

PATH is currently at Northview, the Middle School, and High School. For more information or to make a referral, please contact School Social Worker Anna McCarthy at amccarthy@hgsd.k12.wi.us, Middle School Counselor Jessica Luecke at jluecke@hgsd.k12.wi.us or Elementary School Counselor Amy Pfeifer at apfeiferl@hgsd.k12.wi.us

SBIRT Goal Setting SBIRT (Screening, Brief Intervention, Referral to Treatment) is an evidenced-informed intervention which uses motivational interviewing to create SMART goals for students to strive for. SBIRT is completed through 3-5 brief meetings with the School Social Worker. SBIRT can be used to improve school attendance, mental health, academics, AODA issues, and more. If your student could use a boost from goal setting in a structured environment, please contact School Social Worker Anna McCarthy at 920-565-4450 ext. 322 or amccarthy@hgsd.k12.wi.us
