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. Program Funding Community Aids (formula allocation) $ 2,513,400 Integrated Services Projects/wraparound $ 1,826,500 Systems Change $ 275,945 Consumer/Family Self-Help & Peer Support $ 874,000 Training $ 362,799 Protection & Advocacy $ 65,000 MH/AODA Redesign Initiative $ 537,098 State MH Authority Staff-Planning, Technical Assistance, Oversight of Contracts $ 300,034 Administration/State Operations $ 112,966 Total $6,867,742 3 Wisconsin has identified the following goals for FFY 2004 in the performance indicators for this application: Adult Plan: • To implement a new Comprehensive Community Services benefit to increase funding for an expanded array of services. • To reduce the criminal justice system involvement of persons who have Severe and Persistent Mental Illness served by Community Support Programs and Case Management programs. • To improve access for persons with severe and persistent mental illness to Community Case Management Services. • 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 expand Integrated Services Projects/Coordinated Services Teams to all counties. • 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. 4 WISCONSIN’S APPLICATION INFORMATION FEDERAL FISCAL YEAR 2004 5 Attachment A AGREEMENTS, ETC.
