Project Description Narrative:


Advancing Behavioral Health Initiative Phase I

Milwaukee School, Home, and Community Collaboration to Improve Youth Mental Health is a project within AHW's Advancing Behavioral Health Initiative, an eight-year, $20 million initiative bringing together 10 community coalitions from across Wisconsin to address pressing mental health needs within their communities. A three-phase initiative, phase one served as a funded learning and planning phase, supporting community coalitions in developing a critical project focus and implementation plan. Through this project, partners sought to develop an implementation plan that would improve behavioral health outcomes for children and youth from birth to age 19 in Milwaukee through broad, cross-sector involvement in design and implementation of a coordinated system of effective prevention and early intervention mental health supports.

Outcomes & Lessons Learned:


• Completed the Advancing Behavioral Health Initiative Phase I learning community and planning phase

• Successfully developed project focus and implementation plan, receiving funding award for Phase II five-year project implementation period
