Thanks to an $8,000 contribution from the Charles E. Kubly Foundation, NorthLakes Community Clinic recently purchased a variety of resources instrumental in helping northern Wisconsin youth facing mental health issues. The items purchased through this grant include a wide range of resources focused on building resilience and addressing depression and mental health struggles amongst youth who receive services through NorthLakes’ School-Based Behavioral Health (SBBH) Program. The program serves approximately 300 children across 20 Wisconsin school districts each school year. Items purchased with the support of the Charles E. Kubly Foundation include but are not limited to journal and goal planners for teens, workbooks, games, books, and more. These items draw upon kid-friendly language when building emotional identification, provide youth with the tools to communicate needs more assertively, help youth navigate emotions, and more.
The year-long program is virtual and is open to residents throughout the 20,000 square-mile NorthLakes service area and you need not be a NorthLakes patient to participate. To be eligible, participants must be at least 18 years old and not pregnant at the time of enrollment, overweight with a body mass index (BMI) of 25 or greater, have a Hemoglobin A1C of 5.7% to 6.4% or fasting blood sugar of 100 to 125 mg/dl, or have been previously diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Participants may also enroll on the basis of a high-risk score using the ADA/CDC prediabetes risk test at https://bit.ly/DiabetesTestNLCC.

There are many types of stigma that surround people in Recovery, also known as those who struggle with substance use disorder (SUD). At its core, stigma is described as any false negative beliefs that are widespread about a topic or a group of people.
