Psychiatric Nursing

The APC psychiatric nurse program, located at the Milwaukee County Vel R. Philips Juvenile Justice Center, provides detained youth with screening and other mental health services. Safety of youth within this setting is our primary goal. The registered nurses are experienced behavioral health professionals with a specialization in the care of children and adolescents.  This team of nurses makes over 3,500 contacts with youth annually to assess and/or intervene with mental health issues.
