In 2014, the Milwaukee County Mental Health Board was created by 2013 Wisconsin Act 203 to oversee the provision of mental health functions and services in Milwaukee County. There is currently an open position on the board, as Robert Curry has resigned. We thank Robert for his service. His resignation leaves open the position on the board for “A representative of the community who is a consumer of mental health services.”
The Milwaukee County Budget is vital to funding essential services for children and adults with disabilities, including mental health needs, and for older adults. The 2021 budget is being crafted during a time of extraordinary fiscal challenges due to the pandemic.
Join us August 11 from 3 – 5 PM for a virtual briefing on the 2021 budget requests to learn about the 2021 budget and how you can get involved. Budget resources and meeting materials will be posted on the Mental Health Task Force website as they become available.
Nominations are requested for the 2020 Karen Avery Award and the Marie C. Perry Award. This is a meaningful way to recognize the important work taking place in our community. Please consider submitting a nomination. Nominations are due by September 11th. The awards will be presented at the Karen Avery Forum on October 13th.
