Disability Rights Wisconsin is searching for an excellent communicator to take on our Mental Health Task Force Coordinator position as part of the Milwaukee Mental Health Task Force.
The Milwaukee Mental Health Task Force (MHTF) 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. The MHTF includes participants from community organizations, and other community members, who work collaboratively to advance the quality and responsiveness of mental health and substance use disorder services, give peers and families a strong voice, reduce stigma, and implement recovery principles. The MHTF co-chair has a seat on the Milwaukee County Mental Health Board.
The Coordinator will staff and coordinate monthly MHTF meetings and special programs; staff monthly Steering Committee meetings; provide policy leadership for the MHTF; coordinate funding-related activities; and coordinate the task force’s social media and listserv.
Milwaukee County residency is strongly preferred, with options for remote work. Many meetings are conducted in-person and the Coordinator must be able to attend in-person. The applicant must be a Wisconsin resident.
The position will remain open until filled.
