Donor Spotlight: The Charles E. Kubly Foundation
After their son, Charlie, took his life at the age of 28, Billie and Mike Kubly dedicated their lives to reducing the stigma surrounding mental illness and working to remove barriers facing patients and families struggling with these diseases. Shortly after his death, they created the Charles E. Kubly Foundation which seeks to better the lives of those affected by depression through increasing public awareness of the disease, eliminating the stigma associated with it, supporting suicide prevention programs and promoting improved access to quality mental health resources within communities.

The ongoing generosity of the Charles E. Kubly Foundation is making a dramatic impact in the lives of the community Sixteenth Street serves, especially our low income and uninsured patients. Their most recent $30,000 grant will directly support the expansion of our behavioral health services via our soon-to-open Layton Clinic which, in addition to offering integrated medical and behavioral health care, will provide AODA and substance abuse counseling and treatment and will house Southeast Wisconsin's only bilingual day treatment program for children and adolescents.

We are grateful to the Charles E. Kubly Foundation for their generous support. Thank you for believing in our work and, most importantly, in the people we serve.

I needed help with things that were very difficult for me, like getting social security for my children that have special needs, filling out papers for food stamps and other legal issues like divorce and custody. I don't know a lot of English and I don't have a very high level of education. Filling out paperwork in English and understanding the system was nearly impossible for me. Ana was wonderful. She helped me with everything. She helped with the social security, food stamps and connecting me with....

I'm sure you've all heard a variety of different things from the media about electronics and children. It's difficult to sort out. Electronics are part of our lives and we cannot avoid them. In fact, most people don't want to avoid them and look forward to using the latest and greatest technology. As a behavioral health provider, my concern is for children and how electronics affect socialization and emotional health.

While counseling, it's not rare for me to hear children complain that their parents have no time to play with them or do other things because the parents are always on their phones. Every day I observe parents in the waiting room with their phones in hand and their children on their tablet, instead ... CONTINUE READING.
