It's an exciting time to join our team. With the topics of mental health and substance use becoming more and more prominent in national conversations, Behavioral Health Division employees frequently find ourselves working on the front lines of a landscape that is quickly changing. Our organization is transforming to become a national best practice leader in the way that behavioral health services are delivered to individuals in our community - and employees are part of that continuous improvement process. Be sure to watch the videos on this page to hear from our own nurses, Jeff, Lauren and Vie, about what it's like behind the scenes here.

The Mental Health Complex was built in the 1960's to care for individuals with mental illness who, at that time, expected to permanently reside in this facility. Best practices in care and laws have changed. Over the past three years, we have only closed our long-term care floors. The Behavioral Health Division is still in operation and we are excited to move forward, building a best practice model of care that includes partnering with excellent providers to provide acute inpatient and community-based services. Services provided in our acute hospital and psychiatric emergency department will move in two to three years. Employees who work in these departments are exceptionally trained and will have the opportunity to apply for positions in the new locations.
It is our expectation that Behavioral Health Division employees will remain employed through the transition of our hospital and psychiatric crisis services to the new facility.
Our hospital is located in the Mental Health Complex at 9455 Watertown Plank Road, Milwaukee, WI 53226.
