Children’s Wisconsin in Wauwatosa to add walk-in mental health clinic

A new children’s mental health walk-in clinic is set to open soon at Children’s Wisconsin.

The clinic, which is the first of its kind for children in the Milwaukee area, will serve as a tool for children with urgent mental and behavioral health needs.

Amy Herbst, vice president of mental and behavioral health at Children’s Wisconsin, hopes the clinic will open in February.

“It really comes from the families who told us they needed a place to go for immediate mental health care,” Herbst said.

Herbst said children experiencing urgent mental health issues would be referred to an emergency room. From now on, children will be referred to the clinic, called the Craig Yabuki Mental Health Walk-in Clinic.

The clinic is located in the Hospital Clinics Building at the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center in Wauwatosa, 8700 W. Watertown Plank Road.
