Milwaukee County Outpatient Behavioral Health Capacity Assessment report available online

Mental Health Task Force Update

This morning, Public Policy Forum released their Milwaukee County Outpatient Behavioral Health Capacity Assessment Report:

“The Milwaukee County Outpatient Capacity Analysis (OCA) is the third report issued jointly by the Human Services Research Institute (HSRI), the Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC), and the Public Policy Forum (PPF) related to the ongoing initiative by public and private sector stakeholders to redesign the mental health care delivery system in Milwaukee County….” The report ….”finds that stakeholders in Milwaukee County are challenged by “issues of fragmentation, complexity of provider types, a rapidly changing policy environment, multiple levels of governance, and limited resources” in their efforts to provide sufficient outpatient behavioral health services for low-income individuals.”

Here are links to the report and some related posts. The Task Force meetings for November and December have very full agendas, but we could consider having the report findings as a topic for our January meeting, if there is interest.
