Janesville proudly identifies itself as Wisconsin's Park Place.1 Perhaps that has something to do with the bustling community and many entertaining possibilities offered through public programs. Women can enroll in the S.A.F.E. training program hosted by the local police. This series of classes was put together to help women learn self-defense and general safety practices. Other helpful programs are offered for adults, such as the homebuyer's workshop. The Hedberg Public Library in Janesville provides fun programs for children and teens, such as the Tale for 2s and 3s, Baby Walkers, Library Explorers (for Kindergarten to 5th grade), and sign language classes. Adult classes are also offered at the library, and include a free tax help seminar and a Tell Your Story series to help residents learn the best ways to use local access television. A middle school book club and college goal setting program are also offered and provide something for everyone, no matter what age.

Prevent Suicide Wisconsin is a statewide organization that was formed in response to the rising number of individuals taking their own lives across the state. The mission of the initiative is to reduce the number of deaths through education and outreach programs that inform the public about warning signs that someone may be considering harming themselves. Additionally, the program seeks to reduce stigma associated with mental illness and provide resources for individuals and families who need help. For further information, call 715-551-0966.4

Current Initiatives

The Comprehensive Mental Health Initiative seeks to address the many mental health needs of residents in Rock County. Youth, in particular, require additional mental health services as the rate of substance use and abuse in the county consistently exceeds that of the national average. Additionally, many young people report increased stress and anxiety at home due to economic issues, family problems, and stressors from school. Partnering with the Southwest Wisconsin Workforce Development Board and local school districts, the initiative is working to improve the identification of at-risk youth and coordinate services to better serve their mental health needs.5
