Community Mental Health in Milwaukee County: The Road Ahead
Like other regions in the United States, Milwaukee County has moved away from providing institutionalized care for the mentally ill toward delivering care in community-based settings. This forum explores the progress that has been made thus far and discusses what more still needs to be done. Panelists will assess if current community-based services are sufficient and discuss disparities in access to services that may exist in some neighborhoods and communities in Milwaukee County.
