More About Northland

Northland Community Services, Inc., is a private, for profit, human service agency, located in  central, rural Wisconsin.  Northland provides outpatient and community-based mental health services, and home health services for local citizens.  Some of these services are provided through contract with local county government, and some are private pay.  For more information on specific services we offer, click here
 
Northland was founded by Jon S. Matthew in 1983.  He began working in Marquette County in 1979.  At that time the Marquette County Board of Supervisors wished to open a mental health office within the county boundaries, where none had previously existed. 
 
Northland continues to be the primary provider of mental health services for Marquette County Department of Human Services, but we also provide some mental health services under contract with Juneau County, Adams County, and Waupaca County.  The home health services were added in 1990.  The home health services cover Marquette County, Adams County, and southern Waushara County. 

Today Northland has about 75 employees, full and part-time.  In the mental health area,  we have an outpatient clinic and several other programs.  In the home health area, we have skilled nursing services, therapies, nurse aides, and a variety of other services to support the frail elderly and physically disabled in the community.  The main office, which is the administrative center, is located at the address given above.  The home health office is also located in Westfield about five blocks from the main office, on North Main St.  We have a branch office in downtown Adams.  For pictures of these offices and maps showing their location click-on the location option above, or contact us for more information.
 
People having mental health problems or physical health problems may be eligible for services that we offer.  Each of our programs has specific entry criteria, depending on the problem you have, your payment information (covered by insurance, or not, which insurance, your county of residence, etc.).  Each program has a screening procedure for eligibility.  Some programs require a physician referral.  Some people without insurance might be eligible for services on a sliding scale basis.  All of these questions need to be answered before you start services, so it is necessary for you to contact us to discuss your specific situation, to get you moving on the right track.  If we do not have the service you are requesting we will tell you that up front, and, hopefully, will be able to point you in the right direction.  By reading the information on services provided in this website, many of your questions may be answered, or you can call us to discuss.
 
We provide emergency mental health services on an on-call basis, meaning 24-7.  A mental health professional is always on-call.  You do not have to be a client with us to be eligible for the crisis intervention service, which includes talking with you on the phone, or a face-to-face interview, depending on your situation.  If there is an immediate danger to your life or to someone else’s, then call your local 911, and a police officer will be dispatched, along with an ambulance, if someone is sick or injured.  Read more about our emergency services by going to the home page and clicking-on emergency services, or click here for that information.
 
We have developed this website so that the citizens of this area can access services from us if they need them.  We also want our website to provide information to people, not just about us, but information about the problems you may be experiencing.  Thus, we offer a Consumer’s Corner, which provides information on mental health or physical health problems.  You may reference this information by clicking-on mental health or home health above, or by going back to the home page and clicking-on any of the article titles displayed there.  This website allows our customers to make comments about services they have received from us, or to make comments about articles that are posted on this site.    
 
This website will also display articles that reference issues of managing and directing public human services programs.  If you are employed in public human services, or you are an administrator of an agency, you may wish to review this section of our website, as it pertains directly to the complex issues of administering programs in public human services, including the organizational principles, the philosophy of programs, and management of staff.  This information is available by clicking-on mental health or home health above.
 
Our main effort at Northland is to assist people in living in the local community, hopefully, in their own home.  We provide a variety of support services to accomplish that end.  Check out this website to learn more about what we have to offer, and if you wish to discuss, send us an e-mail, or contact us by phone.
