$50,000 Gift Supports Mental Health at St. Francis

FSIThe Foundation for St. Francis and Franklin is the proud recipient of $50,000 from Felician Services, Inc. The gift was given in support of the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for mental health patients at Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare – St. Francis.

These programs will provide a step between inpatient and outpatient treatment. PHP will allow patients to continue receiving intensive treatment in an outpatient setting. These intermediate levels of care improve patient outcomes and help avoid or reduce inpatient stays. Additionally, the new initiative will build an IOP service line that will be inclusive of an Alcohol and other Drug Abuse (AODA) program as well as a program that blends treatment for those individuals suffering from both AODA and mental illness. Moreover, it will provide a new space where we can treat an additional 24 patients, expanding capacity in the community. These programs are set to be introduced in the next year.

Funding from Felician Services represents their commitment to serve the pressing need for additional mental health services in the Greater Milwaukee Area. We are thankful for their partnership.
