The Wisconsin Idea in Action

Wisconsin Public Psychiatry Project

The Wisconsin Public Psychiatry Project was created to improve the care of people with serious mental illness by providing statewide training to mental health professionals working in public settings, residential settings and crisis services. Training is also provided to police, hospital emergency rooms and others professionals who have contact with people with serious mental illness.


For 19 years the project has operated a state wide teleconference based training program every other week which now averages approximately 200 sites. Professor Diamond has been involved in approximately 20 workshops, conferences or presentations a year for the past 19 years. This has increased the educational base and fostered a more sophisticated approach to people with serious mental illness.
