Letter from the WCMH to Governor Walker regarding biennial budget

Mental Health Task Force Update

As you know the state budget has been approved by the Legislature and has gone to Governor Walker for his review and approval. The attached letter is from the Wisconsin Council on Mental Health and asks Governor Walker to consider vetoing some budget provisions which as seen as “potential to have a significant and disproportionate impact on adults and children with mental health disorders”. Also note that the new Chair of the Council Is Matt Strittmater of LaCrosse. We look forward to working with Matt and thank outgoing Chair Shel Gross for his tremendous leadership and his partnership with the Milwaukee Mental Health Task Force.
