MADISON – Today, State Treasurer and candidate for U.S. Senate Sarah Godlewski traveled to Wausau to meet with community leaders, health care providers, and rural mental health care advocates for a roundtable discussion on the mental health crisis in Wisconsin. The stop in Wausau follows the release of Sarah’s mental health plan earlier this week.
“This week I’ve heard from families, community leaders, and advocates in Green Bay and Wausau who are dealing with a broken system and lacking the resources necessary to address the mental health crisis in our state. It’s unacceptable, so I’ve released a plan to address this crisis and I’m traveling across our state to make sure that Wisconsin families know I have their back in this fight,” said Sarah Godlewski.
Sarah’s plan focuses on:
- Expanding access to behavioral health services and providers
- Confronting the youth mental health crisis
- Supporting veterans’ access to mental health care
- Tackling the farmers’ mental health crisis
- Addressing the maternal mental health crisis
- Providing resources for addiction recovery and holding Big Pharma accountable
- Safeguarding our seniors’ mental health
