Milwaukee County Mental Health System Redesign
The Milwaukee County Mental Health System Redesign is a project that addresses systemic issues with access and service delivery within the adult mental health system. The project involves working closely with stakeholders in Milwaukee to understand the system relationally. Additionally, HSRI uses its system planning simulation model which has been used in 25 states to dynamically forecast the impact of delivering different service options. HSRI partnered with Public Policy Forum in Milwaukee County to convene all stakeholders, including county administrators, Medicaid representatives and consumer and provider groups to develop a rigorous redesign plan. HSRI surveyed case managers, providers, and consumers on their views on available and needed services in Milwaukee County. HSRI will use key informant interviews, community input, data from the service planning and evaluation surveys of case managers, providers, and consumers, service utilization and assessment data, and national best practices to develop recommendations for system improvements.
