LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul is meeting with behavioral health professionals in our area.

Kaul visited Gundersen Health System for a private tour of the Gundersen Lutheran Hospital Behavioral Health Center in La Crosse.

Staff discussed the work they do and changes they think legislators should make.

Kaul says mental health impacts people throughout the state.

“If we can work to prevent people from developing acute behavioral health issues and we have an effective system in place for treating people who have behavioral health issues, that makes a difference in the lives of those people, but it also makes a difference when it comes ot public safety,” said Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul.

Kaul also called behavioral health important to law enforcement.
