Mental Health

PATH (Providing Access to Healing) Counseling 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, Lakeshore Community Health Care, and the School District of Howards Grove. 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, Middle School Counselor Jessica Luecke at or Elementary School Counselor Amy Pfeifer at

For more information about the positive impact that PATH has on our student's academics as well as behaviors check out the 2022-2023 Impact Report.
