We’re launching community conversations

As you are aware, the Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division is working to engage our community in conversations that will shape the new Northside behavioral health care facility. This community feedback will play a vital role in guiding decisions about everything from programs and services to how the facility should look and feel.

Tuesday morning, I’ll be joined by Mental Health Board Member Pastor Walter Lanier and Director of Health and Human Services Hector Colon as guests on 860 WNOV with Jermaine Reed to talk about our “Community Conversations.” We will also be sharing this news with the local media to encourage public participation in these conversations.

TUNE IN to WNOV 860 am TUESDAY, DECEMBER 13 – 8 a.m.

Four community conversations for people with mental illness and their family members are planned for December 2016 and January 2017. Future conversations will be held for stakeholders, health care professionals and others.
