WCMH: Membership

Opportunities to Serve on the Wisconsin Council on Mental Health

The Wisconsin Council on Mental Health (WCMH) welcomes applications to serve on the Council and/or the Committees of the Council. While the Council reviews all applicants, all appointments to the Council are made by the Governor. The WCMH accepts applications for membership from the following to serve on the Council:

  • mental health consumers;
  • family members of those with mental illnesses;
  • parents of school-age children with severe emotional disturbance;
  • mental health advocates; and,
  • county or private providers of mental health services

Apply to serve on the council

To apply two forms should be completed: the Governor's application to serve, and the WCMH Questionnaire. Please see the application handout for more information on how to apply.

An alternative to serving on the Council, is to participate on one of the Council's committees. These committees are:

  • Adult Quality Committee
  • Children and Youth Committee
  • Criminal Justice Committee
  • Legislative and Policy Committee
  • Nominating Committee
  • Executive Committee

If you are interested in applying to serve on one of the Council's Committees please contact the Council at WCMH@wisconsin.gov.
