Current statistics show that 1 in 5 adults experience a mental illness in any given year, yet less than half of them get the support that they need. We understand that asking for help can be difficult. We're here to let you know that you're not alone.
If you are an adult who has Medicaid or Healthy Michigan Plan and are experiencing symptoms of a serious mental illness, intellectual or developmental disability, or substance use disorder, you may be eligible for behavioral health treatment through LifeWays. There are many treatment options available through the LifeWays Provider Network. You will have the ability to help decide your own treatment and goals with a Person-Centered Plan designed by you and your treatment team.
If you are struggling to decide whether you should seek treatment, you can take our confidential online mental health screening, which may help you determine whether what you're experiencing might be mental illness.
If you have private insurance, you can either call the number listed on the back of your insurance card for information about behavioral health providers in your network or you can call Central Michigan 2-1-1 who may also be able to assist you in finding a behavioral health provider.
