 A new mental health walk-in clinic for children 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 experiencing urgent mental and behavioral health needs.

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

“It really came from families telling us that they needed a place to go for immediate mental health care,” Herbst said.

Herbst said children who were experiencing urgent mental health issues would be directed to an emergency room. Now, children will be directed to the clinic, named The Craig Yabuki Mental Health Walk-In Clinic.

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