Behavioral Health

Our Center for Community Health Advancement (CCHA) health educators and community health experts at Marshfield Clinic Health System implement multiple programs to bring behavioral health resources where they are needed most. Many communities in our service area have identified behavioral and mental health as a top priority. Our programs bring education and awareness efforts directly into the communities to support mental wellness for all. 



Other efforts include:

Question, Persuade, Refer

We provide free Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR) suicide prevention training. The training, based on three simple steps - Question, Persuade, and Refer - teaches individuals to recognize the warning signs of suicide and learn how to save a life. QPR is similar to learning the fundamentals of CPR to save lives.


Question: Recognize the warning signs of suicide and start a conversation

Persuade: Know how to offer hope

Refer: Know how to get help and save a life


We offer QPR trainings throughout the year so Wisconsin citizens and caregivers can learn how to prevent suicide and save lives in their communities.

Social Emotional Learning: Life Tool Program

CCHA partnered with Marshfield Clinic Health System Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health to develop Social Emotional Learning: Life Tools program, an 8-week program that consists of weekly one hour group sessions facilitated by a school counselor, school social worker or an adequately credentialed professional counselor for identified youth ages 7-14 experiencing social emotional and/or mental health difficulties. The program includes engagement with parents and schools to provide wrap-around case management. A Marshfield Clinic Health System child psychologist provides technical assistance and consultation to facilitators to ensure quality and fidelity of the program.


Zero Suicide

Zero Suicide is an improvement model that transforms systemwide suicide prevention and care to save lives. Zero Suicide is several things: an aspirational goal designed to catalyze transformational change; a suicide-care model with specific practices for health systems to employ; and, a movement seeking to make health care settings safer and more compassionate for people with suicidal thoughts and urges. Health care systems and leaders design for a zero-based mindset by changing the culture around suicide prevention and care.

Marshfield Clinic Health System is a member of the Zero Suicide initiative. The foundational belief of Zero Suicide is that suicide is preventable. For systems dedicated to improving patient safety, Zero Suicide presents an aspirational challenge and practical framework for system-wide transformation toward safer suicide care. More information about Zero Suicide is available here.

Our Center for Community Health Advancement is involved in a number of community-based initiatives aimed at improving the mental health infrastructure of the communities we serve. Learn more about these initiatives here
