Advancing Behavioral Health Initiative Phase I

Mobilizing Sustainable Behavioral Health Change in Winnebago, Outagamie and Calumet Counties 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 to connect stakeholders and resources to improve behavioral health and resiliency in the tri-county area while focusing on prevention and the overall health of those with behavioral health issues.

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
