Wisconsin Policy Forum President Rob Henken presented the results of an initial planning process to redesign the psychiatric crisis service system in Milwaukee County. The County’s Behavioral Health Division currently runs the region’s only psychiatric emergency department, but that facility will be closing within the next two years when the County contracts for inpatient services with a private provider. The planning process considered the range of both community-based and hospital-based psychiatric crisis services that should be considered in its place.
