Nonprofits of the Northwoods: Drop-In Center Reopens for In-Person Support Groups

NAMI Northern Lakes Center

The Northern Lakes Center is a drop-in center where those experiencing mental illness can find support and connect with peers.

In its four years of operation, the center has helped many people, preventing numerous intakes in local behavioral health units.

It’s been closed to in-person visitors because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but reopened earlier this month.

Listen to the full interview with Coordinator Linda Jacobson to learn more.

WXPR’s Nonprofits of the Northwoods spotlights organizations in our area that are working to strengthen the community – whether that’s by lending a hand to someone in need, educating about the arts, or caring for the environment.

Erin Gottsacker worked at WXPR as a Morning Edition host and reporter from December 2020 to January 2023. During her time at the station, Erin reported on the issues that matter most in the Northwoods.
