Legislation Would Place County Mental Health under Control of Governor=Appointed Board

Legislation will be introduced in Madison to strip the Milwaukee County Board of its oversight of mental health care. The legislation would place control of Milwaukee County’s mental health system in the hands of a board appointed by the Governor and composed primarily of medical professionals. Two non-voting members would be doctors from the Medical College of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, both of whom specialize in community-based services.
