Warmline Expands Hours

Milwaukee, Wisconsin November 27, 2016: Warmline, Inc. the only peer-run service in Milwaukee County, is expanding its hours in December. Beginning December 2, 2016 Warmline will be open 5 evenings a week: Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 6 to 10 pm. This move comes 8 months after Warmline was forced to cut hours to reduce costs. According to Mary Kay Wagner, executive director, “We’ve been able to turn around our difficult financial situation with the hard work of the Warmline staff and Board.”

Warmline, Inc. is a safe, confidential peer to peer non-crisis support line for individuals dealing with mental health or substance abuse challenges. It has been in operation since 2000. Currently, Warmline’s 2 phone lines are staffed by trained peer counselors who have lived experience with mental illness or substance abuse. Warmline is available to anyone living with these issues who needs to talk and wants the support of someone who has “been there.”
