Expanding, Enhancing Emotional Health (E3) Program

Thirty-seven percent of teens in Michigan reported feeling sad and hopeless, with one in five admitting they have seriously considered attempting suicide. Teens report being bullied, and more than half report they have experienced at least one traumatic event in their lifetime. InterCare Community Health Network has partnered with Eau Claire Middle and High School to provide students up to age twenty-one access to on-site mental health services through the Expanding, Enhancing Emotional Health (E3) Program.

This is a grant-funded program through the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Michigan Primary Care Association. InterCare Community Health Network employs a full-time, licensed mental health counselor to meet the needs of the students at the Eau Claire Middle/High School. Some of the services provided are listed below:

• Individual, Group and Classroom Counseling
• General Education (Bully Prevention, etc.)
• Crisis Intervention
• Anger Management
• Depression and Suicide Prevention
• Peer Pressure
• Referrals to other Health Services
