A program facilitated by the United Way of Door County is helping local high school students get the help they need. For the past year, the STRIDE community program has helped arrange mental health services for students at the county's school districts. Sevastopol has partnered with Bellin Health over the last year to provide a weekly visit from a mental health therapist. Director of Pupil Services Melissa Marggraf praises the importance of reaching kids with the services they may not otherwise be able to get or afford.
Marggraf says the program has a waiting list at Sevastopol. Culver's Sturgeon Bay is hosting a Share Night on Tuesday to benefit the program, which Marggraf says will go to the United Way before it is distributed to the area's school districts.
