    • Civil Patients (WI Stats Chapter 51)

      • Courts commit mentally ill persons found to be a danger to self or others to the care of the county.

      • Counties can choose to admit persons to a state Institute for treatment; counties control discharge and approve aftercare placements in the community.

      • Local law enforcement can also initiate “emergency detentions”, with approval and fiscal authorization of the county (can last no more than 72 hours without court review).

      • Institute treatment costs for civil patients paid for by the counties through daily rates charged by the DHS Institutes. Medicaid and other third-party payers are also billed by DHS when appropriate, and revenues obtained offset county costs.

    • Comprehensive Community Services (CCS) is a publicly operated program for adults and children with mental illness and/or substance abuse issues.

    • Many services are provided in home and/or in the community as opposed to a clinician’s office.

      • CCS service plans typically include a mix of access to and maintenance of psychiatric medication, counseling and supportive education, mental health psychotherapy, and case management service.

      • CCS also allows for residential services and other evidence-based mental health and substance abuse treatment.

    • CCS is unique in that that each community bases its behavioral services on local resources and need.

    • In 2011, 1,469 Wisconsin residents were served by Comprehensive Community Services.

    • Peer Respite Centers are an innovative service designed to improve quality of life and reduce emergency room visits.

    • The services are delivered by people who themselves have been successful in the recovery process (certified peer counselors).

    • The services are community-based, residential settings that offer a small number of beds to people before or during a crisis situation, or to those having difficulty coping with mental illness.

    • Because services are peer-run and community-based, Peer Respite Centers show promise in the continuum of crisis programming.

    Opportunities

    Opportunities…

    • Corrections:

      • Is there more we can do to help children earlier so they remain part of the community and out of the correctional system?

    • Education:

      • Are we maximizing resources across programs so the focus is on positive outcomes for children and their families?

    • Social Services:

      • Are state and local agencies working in collaboration to find solutions that address the mental health and behavioral needs of children and their parents?
