On Thursday, we aired a report about the connection between violence and kids’ mental health. Advocates say there needs to be a more coordinated approach in Milwaukee for making sure all the children who need mental health services receive them. Dan Magnuson is working to build a better network. He’s executive director of The Counseling Center of Milwaukee, and chairman of a group called “Youth Mental Health Connections.” Magnuson spoke with WUWM's Erin Toner.</p> Sat, 07 Jun 2008 01:05:31 +0000 Erin Toner 2388 at http://wuwm.com Peace Making Circle Teaches Young Kids to Resist Violence http://wuwm.com/post/peace-making-circle-teaches-young-kids-resist-violence <p>For the last week and a half, WUWM has been reporting on youth violence: the causes and the solutions.
