By continuing to provide counseling support and staff development for unmet mental health needs in the Sevastopol School District, Bellin Health was recognized for its efforts last school year. Bellin Health was recently honored as part of the Wisconsin Association of School Boards 2019 Business Honor Roll program. Marilou Counard, director of Business Development & Ambulatory Clinical Services at the Bellin Psychiatric Center, says Bellin has a strong relationship with the school district and the STRIDE community program. She hopes the program can build off of last year’s success.
Counard says a mental health therapist visits the Sevastopol schools one day a week and works with students who are in need of services that are not available in traditional outpatient settings.
