Milwaukee Mental Health Task Force – July 10th meeting

Please join us for the Milwaukee Mental Health Task Force July meeting, Tuesday, July 10, from 3 – 5:00 PM at IndependenceFirst, 540 S. 1st St.

We have a great agenda you won’t want to miss:

1. Help us give a warm welcome to recently confirmed Milwaukee County Dept. of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Director Mary Jo Meyers. Mary Jo will share her vision and perspective for DHHS, including how the Mental Health Task Force can be a resource.

2. Sixteenth Community Health Center is doing important work on Health Equity. Dr. Maria Perez will share next steps from their recent Health Equity Summit, as well as touch on behavioral health services. She is a Licensed Psychologist and Vice President of Behavioral Health 16th Street Community Health Center

3. Emily Kenney of Impact will share the work of the new Wisconsin Housing First Coalition. The Mental Health Task Force is a member – this will be a chance to learn how we can get involved.

4. Nora Hitchcock, of Our Space will provide an update on plans for the very first Peer Run Respite in Milwaukee County, a top priority for the Mental Health Task Force. We are excited to see Peer Run Respite move forward – come hear more!

5. Update on plans for our 2018 Karen Avery Forum, Our Future Starts Now: Healing, Hope and Resilience scheduled for September 11, and nominations for the Karen Avery Award.
