6/25 Mental Health Board meeting and Public Input

Mental Health Task Force Update

This is a reminder that the Milwaukee County Mental Health Board is meeting this Thursday, June 25, 2015 at 3:00 pm at Washington Park Senior Center, 4420 W. Vliet.

The meeting includes an overview of the proposed 2016 Behavioral Health Division Budget and time for public comment. The agenda indicates that this portion of the meeting will begin at 5 PM and speakers will be limited to three minutes.

The full meeting packet and agenda are available online at http://county.milwaukee.gov/BehavioralHealthDivi7762/Mental-Health-Board.htm

The 2016 BHD budget is very important in terms of the mental health and AODA services that will be available in our county and your voice is important. This appears to be the only opportunity so far this year for members of the public to provide public input at a meeting of the full Mental Health Board, so please consider speaking and spread the word – it is important that the board hears from community members about priorities for the budget and about the urgent needs in the community. The county has not to date publicized these meetings, so members of the public are not aware of this opportunity. At this time, there is no mechanism for members of the public to sign up to receive meeting notices so we encourage you to spread the word.
