Green Bay Boys and Girls Club to add free mental health services

Children interact with Qiyam

Green Bay – Brown County has awarded the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Green Bay a $100,000 grant to create a new mental health counselor position, which will give young people and families additional treatment options.

Unlike many other treatment methods, this treatment is free.

This isn’t the first time the Green Bay Club has prioritized mental health in its community mission. Brock Unrath, director of the department, said it was among the first boys and girls clubs in the US to include a socio-emotional learning department in 2017.

“Accessibility (for mental health) is always an issue, and we are trying to help by having a resource in the club for the kids who are already there,” Unrath said. “This way, parents don’t have to leave work to take care of their children.”
