Mental health should matter to everyone. At West Michigan CMH, it’s important to us that we spread knowledge and education about this area of health and wellness throughout our community.
We do this in an effort to better inform community members and to reduce the stigma that so often surrounds mental health issues and disorders.
Beyond our own services, we are happy to connect individuals in our communities to other resources available to them. Below we have put together a list of other organizations that offer additional behavioral health information and services.
