The West Michigan Community Mental Health Governing Board is comprised of 12 diverse stakeholders who are appointed by the County Commissions of our Lake, Mason, and Oceana County service area. Board members include providers of mental health services, professionals who work closely with mental health service providers, recipients of mental health services, and the general public.
As a critical requirement set forth by the State of Michigan, all Community Mental Health Boards must be generally representative of the people, families, and communities served. West Michigan CMH is proud to continuously meet or exceed the Mental Health Code requirements for these standards.
West Michigan CMH became a three-county Community Mental Health agency serving citizens of Lake, Mason, and Oceana Counties in 1996 and established authority status in 1997. Prior to that time, three separate county-based Community Mental Health organizations were responsible to the State for the delivery of Mental Health Services.
