Anyone can help prevent suicide—you don’t have to be a mental health professional. There are countless examples of silent heroes who recognize emotional suffering in people, respond compassionately, and take action to offer hope.
As people research options for mental health or addiction treatment, they ultimately want to know one thing: does your treatment work?
Summer school, summer camp, summer tutors. We take great lengths to ensure kids maintain academic gains over summer break. But are we doing the same to maintain their mental health?
With the holiday season upon us, the rush to find the perfect gift or pressure to prepare the perfect meal can be overwhelming. If
Rogers Behavioral Health in Oconomowoc and West Allis have been growing some of their own produce to help children and teen patients connect plant growth to their personal changes, reduce food avoidance and keep meals and seasonal treats tasting great.

Statistics show that this time of the year, 45 percent of us are going to make a New Year’s resolution, but of that percentage, only 26 percent will maintain our resolution past the first six months. It seems as though the odds are stacked against most of us when it comes to changing our ways and making major life changes, but Sue McKenzie, co-director of Rogers InHealth (link is external), insists that achieving lasting change is possible not only for New Year’s resolutions, but for achieving mental health as well.
Experiential therapy is a hands-on experience-based approach that assists in healing and overcoming mental or emotional challenges. At Rogers, there’s a variety of experiential therapy approaches available to patients, including art and music therapy, recreational therapy, yoga, horticultural therapy and adventure therapy—which uses challenge courses at various campuses.
Starting in infancy, children mimic their parents’ actions, speech and beliefs, whether good or bad. Studies show that the same goes for parents’ stigma about mental health. Parents’ attitudes toward seeking mental health treatment are a factor in their child’s intentions to pursue psychological help (Vogel, et al., 2009). In other words, if you, as a parent, have a negative view about people with mental health concerns, your child is less likely to speak up about their own mental health. Failing to address a child’s mental health may be extremely harmful and the affects may carry on into adulthood.
