Kimberly students in 5K through 12th grade now have the opportunity to school-based counseling services through United Way's PATH for Students.

The Kimberly Area School District and United Way’s PATH (Providing Access to Healing) for Students program are working together to provide students in the District with the opportunity to receive outpatient mental health services within their school. 
New for this school year:

  • Opportunity for school-based counseling services expanded to students in 5-year-old kindergarten through 12th grade. (Previously only available for grades 7-12.)
  • These services are designed to meet the needs of students and families who would otherwise be unable to access mental health therapy.

Counseling is an excellent way to:

  • Learn new skills
  • Develop self-confidence
  • Become more aware of others’ views and experiences
  • Practice new behaviors
  • Better understand how to deal with the problems life presents

If you are a parent and think your child may benefit, or if you are a student and feel you may benefit from counseling, you are invited to contact your school counselor for further screening. If you have any questions about mental health resources for students, you can also contact Tim Fosshage, Director of Pupil Services, at (920) 788-7900.
