Northwest Journey provides a community-based treatment option by offering comprehensive intervention and preventative services aimed at preventing out of home placements and creating family stability and individual success. In addition, Northwest Journey provides therapeutic support services for children, adolescents, and families transitioning back to the community from out-of-home placements.



Northwest Connections(NWC) provides Emergency Mental Health Services to contracted counties in WI. This program is a collaborative effort between those county partners, service providers and law enforcement. NWC’s goal is to provide the least restrictive response to all crisis situations. Each county contracts for its specific service needs.



Family Directed, Family Centered, Child Focused
The aim of providing outpatient outreach services within the school setting is to engage children and families who are in need of professional help to overcome mild to moderate mental health symptoms. We focus on helping the child overcome/ manage these symptoms by working individually with the child but also by working with the child’s family system.


Support Program

A Community Support Program (CSP) provides comprehensive and intensive case management and rehabilitation services to person with chronic mental illnesses. Typically, these services are provided to adults. There are a few programs in the state that have children enrolled in the CSP. The reason that adults are the main population is the program criteria require that the mental illness be chronic.


Living Skills

Northwest Counseling and Guidance Clinic (NWCGC) in a collaborative effort with a county Department of Human Services (DHS) provides Daily Living Skills and Mentoring services for children and families that reside within the respective county.

I will say, that my kiddos are doing the BEST they have EVER done and I attribute that to all the wonderful work you all have done with them! They are responding….it might be slow, and they continue to have their issues, but they are responding and making some changes. So, give yourselves all (lots) of pats on the back! 🙂

County Social Worker

I wanted to personally thank everyone at NWJ and it’s amazing for me to look back and see where I was to where I am now. I almost have my first job (fingers crossed, the manager said it looks promising), I have my temporary license and working towards my license and I am in track for graduation and maintaining a B+ in my anatomy course. I set a few goals for myself and I’m on track to meet each of my goals. I have to say with the encouragement I had received from my time at NWJ it really proved to me that I can meet any goals I set with a little encouragement and a lot of self-confidence. I can’t thank the staff enough for being involved in my life for the time they were, you all were there to support me when I felt I couldn’t move forward anymore. A year ago around this time I thought I didn’t have a future but I can take a step back and see that my future holds an endless amount of possibilities. Thank you so much for all you have done for me!
