Behavioral Health

Domestic and sexual violence can have a range of traumatic effects and consequences that are difficult to manage alone. The Department of Behavioral Health is currently offering tele-behavioral health video and phone sessions.   To inquire about behavioral health services please contact our Behavioral Health Reception at (414) 316-5004. You are not alone.  There is help available. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our DV/SA Advocate. GLIIHC cares and we are here for you.



Please make sure to call the Health Center at (414) 383-9526,  (Press 1 for the Medical Clinic then when prompted Press 5 to schedule an appointment due to domestic violence or sexual assault)  to express the need for medical services due to physical injury or sexual assault. A healthcare professional will triage your call and discuss options for a timely appointment.



Advocates can assist with a variety of things that you may be going through. Sometimes we do not know what we need help with until we talk to someone who can help guide us in the right direction. An advocate can be someone to listen to when you need to talk, or someone that can connect you to services that can help you financially, legally, physically, mentally or spiritually.

If you are in need of shelter assistance, legal guidance, safety planning, emotional support, and or behavioral health treatment due to domestic violence and/or sexual assault please call GLIIHC’s DV/SA Advocate during regular business hours at 414-640-1062.
