The Milwaukee Mental Health Task Force (MMHTF) mourns Dontre Hamilton and honors his life.

The recommendations in this document grew out of dialogue with Task Force members and heartfelt discussion with Mr. Hamilton’s family, and our fervent conviction that the system must change to ensure other community members get needed services and additional lives must not be lost. We must take action as a community to ensure that this never happens again. Click here to continue reading.
