Hiawatha Valley Mental Health staff are dedicated to addressing the mental health and substance abuse concerns of all the citizens in the many communities we serve. As part of our dedication to helping families in these communities, we have teamed up with local community resources in La Crosse County to form a substance abuse prevention program.
Hiawatha Valley Mental Health Center has a Substance Abuse Prevention Specialist in La Crosse County. Our prevention services can be tailored to any audience and are offered on an individual, family, group, and community level. We provide education and promote awareness at health fairs, local schools, youth groups, and various community organizations. In addition to education, we implement and support alternative drug-free activities and programs to promote healthy lifestyles and relationships. Through these alternative activities, our goal is to build character, resiliency, self-esteem and improve overall mental health. If you are interested in our free prevention resources or would like additional information, please call 608-796-1168.
