A public-private Mental Health Navigation (MHN) work group led by Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Services, together with affiliates and members of the Milwaukee Health Care Partnership, recognized the challenges people experience when trying to find help for mental health and substance use concerns. The group created navigation resources and tools to help consumers and providers connect with local mental health and substance use services. The mental health navigation resources can be found at HealthyMKE.com/well and feature a variety of free tools that help consumers and providers find mental health and substance use care:
- Printable materials
- Direct links to online resources
- Navigation widget that organizations can embed on their websites
John Hyatt, President & CEO of IMPACT, highlights the significance of these navigation tools: “The enhanced mental health navigation resources are more than informational gateways; they provide direct entry points into the array of information we have via IMPACT 211. These enhancements effectively bridge the gap between those seeking help and the available services; marking a significant step in improving access to care.”
