                                   EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

           Wisconsin’s Mental Health Services Block Grant Application (FFY 2004)

This document contains the FFY 2004 Community Mental Health Block Grant Application and the Mental
Health Plan for the State of Wisconsin. As directed by the Center for Mental Health Services, the
application is for FFY 2004 only (October 1, 2003 through September 30, 2004). It is being submitted as
the application for block grant funding to the Center for Mental Health Services. Section I contains the
attachments required for the application.

Wisconsin is proud of its community-based mental health service delivery achievements. The State has
been, and continues to be, a recognized leader in the development and implementation of model mental
health programs. Wisconsin’s service delivery system is rooted in Chapter 51 of Wisconsin law, which
mandates mental health services be provided within each county of the State.

Much of Wisconsin’s efforts to continually improve its mental health system can be traced back to the
Governor’s Blue Ribbon Commission Final Report on Mental Health (1997). The Wisconsin Council on
Mental Health has recently taken over responsibility for oversight of the implementation of the BRC
recommendations from a previous committee appointed by the Secretary of the Department of Health and
Family Services. Some of the primary guiding principles defined in the Blue Ribbon Commission report for
Wisconsin’s mental health system include that families of children are central to the treatment process;
services are individualized and promote recovery and hope; prevention and early intervention are
emphasized; mental health and substance abuse services are accessible to all; and services are designed to
be culturally competent (see Appendix 1 for complete BRC mission and principles).

Some of the major activities expected in FFY 2004 in Wisconsin include the addition of the Comprehensive
Community Service benefit. It will address unmet needs of children/youth, adults, and elders with greater
needs than outpatient services and less intensive needs than required in Community Support Programs.
The expansion of the Coordinated Service Team initiatives for children to additional counties is also an
important development. The Mental Health/Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (MH/AODA) Redesign
initiative also continues to be a major focus for Wisconsin. This initiative aims to create managed care
mental health systems in four demonstration sites that focuses on recovery-oriented services.

The following is the proposed expenditure of funds.

•     To further reduce wait lists for services in Community Support Programs.

•     To increase access to mental health services for adults with a Severe and Persistent Mental Illness
      in rural areas.

•     To at least maintain resources to consumer-run programs and family support services.

Children’s Plan:

•     To increase the number of children with severe emotional disturbance and their families who are
      receiving services through the public mental health system.

•     To reduce out-of-home placements for children with severe emotional disturbance.

•     To improve access to TeleHealth (tele-psychiatry) consultation in rural areas.

•     To at least maintain resources to consumer-run programs and family support services.

•     To increase the number of counties with children’s service staff trained in organizing collaborative
      service delivery systems within the children’s Integrated Services Programs and Coordinated
      Service Team programs.
