In a mental health emergency such as a threat of suicide, call the Macomb County Crisis Center, (586) 307-9100 or (855) 996-2264 (Toll free). The client will be directed to either services through the Community Mental Health network or to the nearest Emergency Room. 

At the hospital, staff will assess the immediate need and obtain authorization for the appropriate level of care. Treatment may be provided in an inpatient unit or in an alternative community setting, according to best practice guidelines, Macomb County Community Mental Health or hospital policy, and the situation.


Contact the senior citizen’s Qualified Health Plan (Medicaid or Healthy Michigan) for a referral to a mental health agency for 20 mental health visits. When the senior citizen has exhausted these visits and the mental health problem is severe, services may be available from a Macomb County Community Mental Health (CMH) treatment agency.

To receive services from CMH after the 20 visits, call the CMH Access Center for a telephone screening and appointment. The screening will include an assessment of the problem, identification of insurance benefits and a referral to an appropriate agency, based on the level of needed care.
