This is a free training to learn how to volunteer at one of our Mental Health Without Borders™ CAMPsites™. Working in collaboration with our Milwaukee community partners such as Milwaukee Turners we are bringing community voices, experiences, and expertise to our forum. This event was made possible by Wisconsin Department of Health Services - Workforce Development Technical Assistance Forum grant. This forum aims to bridge the gaps in mental health care, transcending borders to create a world where everyone has access to comprehensive and compassionate relational support.
Participants will gain valuable insights from community practitioners, researchers, and advocates who are driving positive change in mental health initiatives.

Together we will be able to provide Milwaukee with 160 hours of free skilled mental health and wellness care. Utilizing Mental Health Without Borders™ CAMPsites™ we estimate we can bring over 1,600 therapeutic relational connections directly to Milwaukee residents.
Together we can positively impact hundreds of people in our communities. It only takes one compassionate connection at a time to influence the frequency of change needed to build community health and wellbeing. Join us on this movement to heal MKE.
