Thanks to Mental Health Task Force Steering Committee Mark Flower who spoke at the June 25th Mental Health Board meeting and presented a portion of the Milwaukee Mental Health Task Force budget Testimony, and also shared copies of the Task Force survey on County Budget priorities. These are both posted on our web site at: http://www.milwaukeemhtf.org/2015/06/04/2016-milwaukee-county-behavioral-health-division-budget.html

Mary Neubauer is the Mental Health Task Force Representative on the Mental Health Board. She submitted questions to BHD regarding the 2016 BHD budget. The questions and responses are also posted on our web site for your reference. Mary will be submitting follow-up questions, as well.
