About Our Program
Some problems in life are too difficult to handle alone. When problems like tensions in a marriage, behavioral issues with a teen or pre-teen, depression, anxiety or daily stressors overwhelm your life – it’s good to know you don’t have to walk that road alone. Counseling helps people to understand their personal needs, focus on the cause of their problems and determine ways to resolve or cope with those issues.
Catholic Charities Behavioral Health/Counseling Services is a State certified outpatient behavioral health clinic providing accessible, culturally competent, high quality mental health services for individuals, families, children and couples of all faiths. All therapists are licensed to practice in the state of Wisconsin and bilingual therapists are available at all of our sites. We serve adults, children and families who suffer from emotional distress.
The agency recognizes the added challenges of people living in poverty and accepts patients who do not have any means to pay, as well as those with limited resources, on a sliding fee scale adjusted to an individual's or family's size and financial situation. Additionally, third party insurance payers, Medicare and Medicaid are accepted.

Daivon was lost after spending time in the hospital, diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and major depressive disorder. His symptoms were severe and recurrent which made it hard for him to hold a full-time job and made him feel even more depressed. He began drinking more and smoking to cope. Daivon wanted to make a change so he reached out to Catholic Charities. He met with a therapist weekly and learned positive coping skills to manage his anxiety. He reduced his drinking, stopped smoking, and found a job that he enjoys. We have seen a significant difference in Daivon’s life since he walked through our doors; so much so that his depressive disorder is in remission!
