The Winged Victory outreach program was developed to assist consumers with mental illness in applying for disability and insurance benefits that are available through a variety of agencies.
Funded by the Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division, the goal of Winged Victory is to help eligible consumers navigate the application process by submitting medical evidence and other verifications to the Social Security Administration, the Disability Determination Bureau, and the Milwaukee County Economic Support Division to access various benefits such as Social Security Disability and Medicaid in a timely manner. In addition, Winged Victory provides financial screening to determine which disability programs a consumer is eligible for.
Referrals to Winged Victory must be made by staff members at the Milwaukee County Behavioral Health Division or the contracted clinic - the Center for Consultative Academic Psychiatric Services (CCAPS).
