City of Milwaukee Suicide Review Commission
In 2021, the CIC has begun to convene a Suicide Review Commission, which is focused on reviewing suicides that occur among residents of the City of Milwaukee. The purpose of this commission is to review these suicides to provide information that can be used in suicide prevention activities. The Commission includes partners from a number of community-based organizations, including the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office, Mental Health America of Wisconsin, the City of Milwaukee's Office of Violence Prevention, Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division, and local hospital systems. Findings from these reviews will be disseminated quarterly to the community.
