LSSWis - Lutheran Social Services (LSS) of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan

Your mental and emotional well-being is as important as your physical health. In fact, since both your mind and body impact the quality of your life, the two are connected and should be considered parts of a larger picture. Taking care of both can help you lead a healthier life.

However, many individuals struggle with mental and behavioral health concerns, such as depression, anxiety, alcohol and other drug addiction and relationship issues. You don’t have to face these challenges alone. We offer comprehensive mental health services to meet a variety of needs in a welcoming, confidential setting.


Our counselors will help you face your challenges head on. We focus on the whole person. All counseling services are provided in a welcoming, confidential environment at locations throughout the state.
