About Us

Over 20 partnering organizations from Chippewa and Eau Claire Counties are working together to support actions to improve youth mental health in the community.

Health Priority

Mental Health was one of the top three health priorities identified as needing improvement in both Chippewa and Eau Claire counties in the 2014-2015 Community Health Assessments.

Target Audience

Youth and their families are the target population of the project. The intent is to both decrease rates of youth depression and increase resiliency in Chippewa Valley youth.

Steering Committee

The Mental Health Matters steering committee consists of representatives from partnering organizations in the Chippewa Valley who provide input, guidance, and direction as the grant is developed and implemented.

Learning Community

The Chippewa Valley participates in Learning Community meetings with nine other communities across Wisconsin. The Learning Community provides and receives guidance and support with program development.
