St. Croix and Pierce County Public Health, area hospitals, clinics, and community partners, conducted a community health needs assessment in 2019 to determine health priorities within our communities for the next two years. This effort, titled “Healthier Together”, identified substance use and mental health concerns as the top two priorities for 2020-2022. As a result, both counties have created a community health improvement plan to address these health concerns.The full report can be found online at: HealthierTogetherStCroix.org
Addiction and mental health disorders are healthcare concerns. Our health is complex and affected by many factors that can include housing, your environment, employment, access to healthcare, and nutrition just to name a few. Just like any other health condition, mental health and addiction disorders require treatment specific to the needs of the individual. St. Croix County Public Health and Behavioral Health Divisions work together to offer services for adults, children, and families affected by mental health and addiction.
Our goal is to continue offering evidence-based strategies that evolve with the science of
behavioral and public health and reduce the stigma that surrounds mental health and addiction. We are working to better integrate behavioral health with other healthcare services and to make these services affordable and accessible to anyone who may benefit from them.
St. Croix County offers the following emergency services:
- Individual and family crisis assessments and interventions
- Mental Health crisis consultation
- Mobile on-site response to crisis situations to assess risk to self or others
- Telephone crisis intervention
- Coordination of out-of-home placements
