Iowa State University Extension and Outreach: Clinton County

There’s a reason we do what we do in Iowa State University Extension and Outreach: We want a strong Iowa. That’s why we partner with Iowans and harness the resources of our university for communities and farmers to thrive, for families and children to be healthy, and eventually to turn the world over to the next generation better than we found it. Because a strong Iowa is what we all want.

Many Iowans – both youth and adults – struggle with mental illness, and we know that it is a difficult topic to discuss…but it shouldn’t be. A person's mental health does not, and should not, define them. We encourage all Iowans, especially those in our communities in Clinton County, to start an open dialog around mental health. The more openly we can discuss it, the more the stigma is erased.

Clinton County Extension is committed to providing research and evidence-based educational opportunities for ALL to gain knowledge and skills around this topic, such as:

  • Mindful Teen
  • Question. Persuade. Refer
  • Mental Health First Aid (Youth and Adult)
  • Powerful Tools for Caregivers
  • What About Me? My Wellbeing

For these and other mental health offerings contact Sam Genson at or visit to learn more about the mental health resources that Iowa State University Extension and Outreach provides.”
