Journey Mental Health Center (formerly Dane County Mental Health Services) is the largest provider of mental health services in Dane County serving over 12,000 individuals and families last year.  JMHC is considered the safety net for mental health services in the community.  It is the place of last resort for those needing mental health services and are not covered by any insurance program and have no ability to pay.
