b4Stage4May is Mental Health Month

When we think about cancer, heart disease, or diabetes, we don’t wait years to treat them. We start before Stage 4—we begin with prevention.  Why don’t we do the same for individuals who are dealing with potentially serious mental illness?

b4Stage4When you or someone close to you starts to experience early warning signs of a mental illness, knowing the risk factors and symptoms will help to catch them early. Often, family and friends are the first to support a person through these early stages. Like other health conditions, we need to address the symptoms early, identify the underlying illness, & plan an appropriate course of action on a path towards overall health.

 Prevent Suicide Wisconsin Unveils New State Suicide Prevention Strategy

The Wisconsin Suicide Prevention Strategy 2015 (WSPS) was unveiled at the annual Prevent Suicide Wisconsin (PSW) conference on April 29th. The new strategy replaces the one that was created in 2002 and is intentionally more targeted to achieve greater impact. Local suicide prevention coalitions and others interested in suicide prevention are asked to consider how they can align their efforts to this new strategy.


Wisconsin United for Mental Health is a broad and diverse coalition of citizens dedicated to working collaboratively to eliminate the stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness. Our initiatives promote mental health awareness and education with a wide variety of target audiences, e.g. media, employers, hospitals, and others. The goal is to expand awareness, improve inclusion and use of best practices in multiple environments and systems, and build linkages to support recovery.
