The Milwaukee Mental Health Task Force is committed to being a leader in identifying issues faced by all people affected by mental illness, facilitating improvements in mental health services, giving consumers and families a strong voice, reducing stigma, and implementing recovery principles.
The Milwaukee Mental Health Task Force provides a forum wherein different sectors of the mental health delivery system come together to address and resolve issues of interest to all people affected by mental illness. The Task Force was formed in 2004, in response to a crisis in inpatient psychiatric services that exposed major gaps in Milwaukee’s system of mental health care, as documented in the Critical Juncture Report. The Task Force members include consumer groups, advocacy organizations, providers, law enforcement, and other community stakeholders.
