Foundations Partnering With Area Agencies for “Look In – Reach Out” Campaign

Posted on 8-24-2021

Foundations Health & Wholeness is proud to be partnering with Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin, Samaritan Counseling Center of the Fox Valley, and Catalpa Health on the “Look In. Reach Out.” campaign to encourage community members to consider their own mental wellness and to check in on their loved ones as well.

We all know there a people in our community who are struggling with their mental health and well-being. Mental well-being is a concern for everyone; we’re all coping with a number of changes and emotions.

Foundations wants help foster these conversations, and also let people know there are resources available if they need professional help.

Foundations’ President and CEO, Ryan Good, shared things to watch for that may indicate someone we care about may be struggling:

“Number one, isolating. Where your friend, your family member isn’t doing the things they used to do regularly. Where they show a loss of interest, maybe less connection in the relationships with individuals. Maybe sleeping more often, eating more or less than they usually do. Just those common things associated with anxiety and depression, maybe a little bit more worry, as well.”

Foundations Health & Wholeness

Foundations Health & Wholeness serves the community by healing mind and spirit through mental health counseling and foster care.

Mental Health Counseling

  • Our main clinic offers full range of mental health and addiction services.
  • We partner with social organizations in ten different locations to embed our therapists to serve children and adults with significant barriers to care, including those living in poverty, experiencing homelessness, the aging and people with disabilities. These satellite clinics offer an opportunity for us to train and supervise the next generation of licensed therapists and address the scarcity of licensed therapists in Wisconsin.
  • We also provide counseling at three public schools. We are the founder, and an active member, of Connections for Mental Wellness, a coalition of mental health care providers seeking to reduce the number of poor mental health days.

We provide approximately 12,000 mental health sessions every year, plus casual support, psycho-education, and over 500 hours of service on mental health tasks forces and committees. About 60% of our clients are either uninsured or under-insured, and we keep our doors open to everyone in need of mental health counseling.


In foster care, we recruit, license, and train foster parents. We work with counties throughout Wisconsin to provide placement and case management for children in need of loving foster homes. We provide treatment-level foster care to support children have experienced trauma, and have higher emotional and physical needs. Through our foster care offices in Green Bay, Greater Milwaukee area, Sheboygan/Lakeshore area, the Fox Valley, and soon Janesville, we serve over 130 children every year. The number of children we serve grows every year.
