Mission:  To improve the emotional health of youth throughout the Fond du Lac Area by providing early identification of mental health disorders and risks of suicide through easily accessible screening, referral to services and facilitating follow-up treatment through case management.
 
Vision: To offer emotional health screening to every student in the Fond du Lac Area before age 18.
 
The goals of the Fond du Lac YScreen program are:
 
1) To improve the overall emotional health of our youth by offering all youth emotional health screening by the time they turn 18.
2) To effectively screen youth for interfering emotional problems and facilitate effective interventions and treatment.
3) To reduce the stigma of emotional health issues and increase public knowledge and awareness.
