HWPP Strategic Component
The Healthier Wisconsin Partnership Program Strategic component is designed to catalyze health improvement in community-based mental and behavioral health.
By utilizing the assets of MCW’s community and academic partners, and also leveraging the AHW Endowment’s financial and non-financial resources, the component brings stakeholders together to work collaboratively and create solutions to improve mental and behavioral health in Wisconsin.
In April 2015, HWPP connected with more than 150 community stakeholders to engage in a dialogue regarding the opportunities and challenges in the field of mental and behavioral health. Participants identified current initiatives across the state, discussed successes and challenges within the mental health area, and expressed their perceptions of the most important priorities in mental and behavioral health.
HWPP hosted nine community forums in April 2015:
Four Roundtable Conversations (funders, providers, advocates and youth-serving agencies)
Five Community forums (Milwaukee, Madison, Eau Claire, Green Bay and Wausau).
