Milwaukee Mental Health Services Still Inadequate

By Eugene Barufkin

July 10, 2016

We are losing people because of untreated and less than adequate treatment of mental health/behavioral problems.

Contributing to this loss of many people are the extreme needs for professionally supervised group home capacity in this area. (Overnight shelters and jail cells do little to help these problems… In fact, these facilities offer too much false help.)

In too many cases, judges and the DA office have little choice because of lack of capacity, including a reported 40% shortage of mental health professional staffing in the Milwaukee area.

If you have lost someone because of these problems, please use Facebook’s “Message” for, or email Eugene Barufkin,, to help form a new group to organize additional advocacy.
