Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Racine

While the divorce rate nationwide continues to remain steady, Wisconsin has actually seen a increase in divorces between 2000 and 2010 despite federal, state and county level initiatives to improve marriages.2 These initiatives, including the federal government's Healthy Marriage Initiative (HMI), were set forth to provide couples counseling programs to promote healthy relationships. The initiatives are an attempt to decrease the divorce rate, increase the number of marriages, educate the single population, and provide for the overall wellbeing of families.3

The Racine Family YMCA offers programs aimed at helping youth develop into responsible, caring, healthy and educated adults. A central component of YMCA activities is academic support. The Young Leaders Academy provides elementary-aged children with after-school support for homework, as well as tutoring services for students who need extra help. The Young Achievers Program provides similar support for middle school-aged students in order to prepare them for the rigors of high school. Both programs also entail a leadership component, in which students participate in activities that teach them how to be effective communicators and strong leaders in their school. Call the YMCA at 262.634.1994 to find out more about these programs.4
