Get Help

When you don't know where to turn, there is help.

Domestic Abuse Prevention

Domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking and trafficking know no boundaries. It can happen to anyone. And when it does, you need help — to get out, start over, find answers, know what your options are, or find a network of support. You’re not alone. We’re here to help every woman, child and man in our community who is sexually assaulted, stalked, trafficked, or subjected to emotional, mental, physical, sexual and verbal abuse.

Drug Abuse

Together with our partners we apply Stanford’s Collective Impact Model (.pdf) to improve the health and safety for all residents in Marathon County. To create long lasting sustainable change, the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) suggests utilizing the “7 Strategies for Community Change (.pdf)“. When communities use this approach, the interventions are more well-rounded and complete. This is also an excellent way to create plans of action on how to reach long-term goals to impact a host of problems negatively affecting the community.


Bullying is a serious problem that has real repercussions for the person being bullied and for the bully. Find out what bullying really is and how to stop it.  


Healthy Marathon County is committed to making Marathon County the healthiest county in Wisconsin. Our members, who live and work in Marathon County, collaborate with community partners to build systems, environments, and a culture that supports health and wellness.


Vaping is not a safe. E-cigarettes contain nicotine and toxic chemicals, including acetaldehyde, acrolein and formaldehyde, that can cause lung and cardiovascular disease. Know the facts.


Talk to someone confidentially or find help for a loved one who is distressed or may be in crisis. There is hope, and there is help.
