In a move to save money, Dane County plans to open two mental health centers.
Dane County plans to open two mental health crisis centers in an effort to save money by reducing the number of people hospitalized for mental health problems.
Last fall, Dane County Executive Kathleen Falk proposed funding a $524,000 program with 12 beds to triage mental health patients who are taken to hospital emergency rooms and later Mendota Mental Health Institute, costing county taxpayers more than $1 million a year.
The new plan would fund two centers run by Tellurian UCAN and the Mental Health Center of Dane County with 20 beds total.
CARE HOUSE now open in LaCrosse
The CARE (Crisis Assessment, Recovery and Empowerment) House formed in early 2009 as a collaborative effort to improve the mental health and substance abuse crisis system for adults in west central Wisconsin.
In light of the complex interactions between crisis system stakeholders – including but not limited to advocates and consumers, county staff, law enforcement, medical personnel and other service providers – the project seeks to incorporate the input of these various entities in such a way as to leverage the expertise of each while meeting the needs of all in a mutually beneficial manner.
