Milwaukee Crisis Resource Center


When an individual with chronic mental illness experiences an after-hours crisis, the choice has been jail or the emergency room. Now the Milwaukee Crisis Resource Center offers respite housing and stabilization staffed by peer support specialists and an on-site nurse. The Center provides mental and physical health assessment, case management and connections to existing housing, mental health, and legal services. A community mental health task force including the police, courts, county mental health, hospital systems, mental health service providers and consumers, family members and advocates developed this remarkable public/private partnership.
