A network of Care with local mental health and substance abuse resources and links
The local site, developed by the Northeast Wisconsin Mental Health Connection and Connections for Mental Wellness in partnership with United Way Fox Cities and Brown County United Way’s 2-1-1, was funded by the Community Foundations of Greater Green Bay and the Fox Valley Region through the Basic Needs Giving Partnership, and the Healthier Wisconsin Partnership Program/Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment.
MyConnectionNEW.org is your one-stop source for mental health and substance abuse information, resources, and service navigation in Brown, Outagamie, Calumet, and Winnebago counties. This “network of care” also includes emergency phone numbers and hotlines, anonymous mental health screenings, medication information, and much more. And, it can be translated into over 100 languages!
Connections for Mental Wellness can provide training on key website features, as well as promotional materials like posters and handouts.
