For Friends, Families & Communities

Empowering You with Knowledge and Resources

We know you want to help your loved one — we can help. We offer diverse services and group counseling sessions for friends and family. And we routinely gather the best information resources currently available — resources that can help you better understand the challenges your loved one faces and the opportunities that can help them enjoy a better quality of life.

A vibrant community is also a changing community. At North Central Health Care, we work with diverse community organizations to help assess what mental health, skilled nursing, crisis, substance abuse and developmental challenges residents are facing, what services and resources they need and what opportunities we can help develop — facets of building strong communities that improve quality of life. We also gather resources that can be of assistance to community organizations.

Following are a list of resources for friends, family and our communities in Langlade, Lincoln, and Marathon counties.

United Way of Marathon County Get Help Guide


UPLIFT WI: This line is for Wisconsin residents and is staffed by certified peer specialists – people with lived experiences of mental health, substance use and other related life experiences. Call this line if you need someone to talk to for support when things are difficult, or when you just need a peer to connect with. You do not need to be in crisis to call this line. This line is fully anonymous and confidential and is not directly connected to crisis linkage services. We will not call emergency services on you unless you specifically request this from us, and that process will be led by you.
