Welcome to LifeWays Community Mental Health

Did you know that one in four individuals will experience a mental illness, developmental disability or a substance use disorder at some point in their lifetime? Examples include depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, mental retardation, autism, and disorders such as attention deficit and severe emotional and behavioral problems for children.

At LifeWays Community Mental Health (CMH), we understand that asking for help isn’t always easy. We’ve made it our goal to ensure you receive confidential, person-centered healthcare in a comfortable setting and are treated with the respect and dignity you deserve, at all times. Along the way, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, make choices and help decide what your plan of care will be, in order to provide you or your loved one with the most appropriate services for your condition with the best quality of care and service possible. Want to learn more? Click here to view our annual report or click on one of the service areas listed below.

Ready to get services started? Click one of the boxes below to browse available services. Then, check out our Access to Services page or give us a call for a brief screening.

For more information about the regionalization, please visit the new Region 5 website.  This website provides status reports on the information that is being prepared by our region for submission to the Michigan Dept. of Community Health.

If you are an adult living with a mental illness and/or a developmental disability, there are many services available to help you get on the road to recovery.

Most individuals participate in outpatient therapy, but there are other services you may qualify for and benefit from, such as case management, psychiatric services, clubhouse, crisis services and much more.
At LifeWays CMH, eligible children and their family members are provided support, guidance, and intervention by staff that have training in the best evidenced-based practices available.

Whether your child has a developmental disability or demonstrates behavioral challenges as a result of a childhood trauma, stress, or loss, intervention and support is available.
Wraparound, home-based, respite, and case management are some of the services available to families to help support and resolve child behavior challenges.

Parents are often the focus of intervention as they are vital for bringing about the changes within the home and with their child.
Persons with a co-occurring disorder (mental illness along with an alcohol or drug use problem), may be eligible to receive services for both issues at LifeWays CMH.  Treating the whole person means dealing with both issues and staff have the training to help a person achieve recovery from both.

HealthyME is a comprehensive wellness program based on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Eight Dimensions of Wellness.

HealthyME is designed especially for individuals living with a serious mental illness who are ready to make changes to improve their overall health and wellness.

Research shows that individuals living with mental illnesses are at an increased risk of developing physical illnesses, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and respiratory diseases caused by smoking, obesity, substance use.

We have partnered with Allegiance Health’s It’s Your Life program, as well as Central Michigan 2-1-1 to create a program that will help you work on reducing your health risks in ways that are meaningful (and fun!) for you. Click here to learn more!
