Mental Health Board

The Milwaukee County Mental Health Board (MHB) was established in 2014 through Wisconsin Act 203. The board is made up of 13 members and includes mental health professionals, consumers and advocates. The MHB is responsible for setting policy for the Behavioral Health Division.

 

We invite you to learn about the Mental Health Board and our important work. Join us at an upcoming meeting (see schedule below), review the work we have done, reach out to us with questions. To reach the Mental Health Board, email us at mhb@milwaukeecountywi.gov. Because our board members are appointed volunteers, any messages for specific board members can be sent to this address.

 

Thank you for your interest in the Milwaukee County Mental Health Board.
