We want to remind the community that the BRHWC Native Connections program is available for our youth! This voluntary program is designed to promote mental health, prevent suicidal behavior, and reduce substance misuse among Bad River community young people up to and including age 24. We accomplish this through the use of culturally appropriate, coordinated care, case management, and comprehensive service plans. You may have seen Jeanne or Mary Beth in the schools but youth are welcome to meet with us at the BRHWC, too! Call for more information or if you'd like to make a referral: (715) 682-7133.
