Announcement: Director, Community Centers

Good morning Team BHD,

I am reaching out to you with exciting news. Chad Meinholdt, MSW, LCSW, has accepted our offer to join the Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division as Director, Community Centers. In this new position Chad will oversee the creation, implementation, and operations of the Northside Facility and the continued expansion of our community services to eventually include a Southside location as well.

As many of you know, filling this position has been a long and lengthy process. We needed to make sure we had the right person to complement our team and bring both vision and experience to the work we are doing to transform the behavioral health care system in Milwaukee county. I am very confident that Chad is the right leader for this position which is evident by his twelve plus years of leadership experience at La Causa Inc. providing comprehensive services to children and adults with significant mental health, substance use, and co-occurring needs. Chad has years of experience creating, implementing, and/or overseeing many programs such as Wraparound Care Coordination, Reach, Recovery Support Coordination, Comprehensive Community Services, Targeted Case Management, CLASP, and many more. Chad’s direct knowledge of care coordination, crisis management, and outpatient services makes him the ideal person to move this initiative forward.

Chad’s first day with BHD will be October 24, 2016. We will be announcing Chad’s hire publicly but wanted to share this with you first. Team members will have a chance to meet Chad through his work in CARS and Crisis Services. He will also be at an upcoming Town Hall meeting for introductions.

Please join me in welcoming Chad to the BHD Team!

Thank you,

Amy Lorenz, MSSW, LCSW
Deputy Administrator, Community Access to Recovery Services
Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division
