Position title: Serve on a Board to improve mental health and substance use services in Milwaukee County
Description: Vital Voices needs individuals to serve on its Board of Directors and/or its committees. The Board plays a crucial role in setting policies and procedures for our advocacy work on behalf of people with mental illness and substance use disorders. Since our agency is small, our board plays a very hands-on role in providing oversight for our organization. It's a great way to be a part of improving the quality of care for people with mental illness in our community. We particularly need individuals with Human Resource experience!
