The Right Connection - Mental Health



Mental Health Services

Click on each title below to see detailed information.

The cost of mental health services is paid for by private insurance companies or public health care coverage e.g., Medicaid, Healthy Michigan.

Individuals with Public Health Care coverage may choose a health plan (e.g., Meridian, Molina, etc.) and use up to 20 visits before being referred to Macomb County Community Mental Health for additional mental health services in that calendar year.

Individuals with private insurance, need to find mental health services through their insurance carrier network. The insurer’s telephone number is usually on the back of the insurance card.

Youth

(A situation is considered a mental health emergency when an individual is at direct and immediate risk of seriously harming him/herself or someone else; if a person’s symptoms of mental illness are active and s/he is unable to care for her/himself; or is unable to understand the need for treatment and these conditions can be reasonably expected to result in harm).

If a youth is experiencing a psychiatric/behavioral health emergency, go immediately to the nearest hospital with a psychiatric care unit. Hospitals contracted with CMH to provide emergency services:

If the youth is experiencing a mental health emergency and there is a question about whether to go to the hospital, call the Macomb County Crisis Center, (586) 307-9100.

In some situations, hospital care may be needed to stabilize a crisis. Hospital care may be needed if a person is at immediate risk of harming him/herself or someone else, or if the person's lack of understanding about the need for treatment places him/her at immediate risk of harm (e.g., a person makes a threat to hurt themselves or someone else, the person stops bathing or eating, if they stop taking medications to manage a psychiatric condition, or taking excessive risks).

If you think hospital care may be needed, or if you aren't sure, call CMH Access Center and speak to the Open Access Coordinator. They will help arrange hospital care if it is needed.
