About Northwest Counseling and Guidance Clinic
In 1994, Northwest Counseling and Guidance Clinic developed its first children’s mental health day treatment program. Since that time, the organization has stayed true to its belief in children, staff, and quality programs.
A Vision of Hope
The guiding vision for NWCGC was of a system that provided a continuum of mental health treatment programs in communities throughout Wisconsin. Great strides have been made toward the realization of that vision with the creation of multiple programs offering services to a diverse population over a large geographic area.
Northwest Journey provides children’s mental health day treatment. Our sites serve over 200 children and families daily in 12 communities throughout Wisconsin. We also provide virtual programming options for clients. The first program was started in 1994, and at the time, represented the first full-day day treatment program in the state. It is the goal of the staff of each Northwest Journey facility to play a valued role in the larger mental health treatment network within the community in which they function.
Northwest Connections includes telephone and mobile services for persons experiencing a crisis within contracting counties. NWCGC began providing this service in 2000 but further developed the services in January of 2005.
Northwest Directions is an outpatient mental health service that provides therapy for clients in a one-on-one, or family setting. Northwest Directions began providing services in 1994.
