STRIDE providing greater need for mental health resources in schools

Children in Door County are getting additional school resources to help improve their overall mental well-being. According to the National Alliance on Mental Health, one in five young people reports that the pandemic has had a significant negative impact on their mental health. STRIDE, a United Way program that began in 2019, brings medical professionals and counseling services into the five Door County public schools.  STRIDE stands for Strengthening Trust, Resilience, Instilling Independence, Discovering Empowerment.  Community Impact Coordinator of Health Cami Peggar says the program has grown, nearly doubling the number of children served in the past four years.



Peggar adds that STRIDE works to eliminate the barriers presented by Door County’s unique infrastructure that can limit access to mental health care. If you'd like to support additional school hours for STRIDE, you can make a tax-deductible financial donation by going to the United Way website
