Community Mental Health

Department History

Washtenaw County Community Mental Health (WCCMH or CMH) has been at the forefront of the Community Mental Health movement since its inception in the 1960s. On October 1, 2015, Washtenaw County Community Support and Treatment Services (CSTS) became Washtenaw County Community Mental Health.

Our tradition of services to children and families extends back to the Child Guidance movement of the 1940s. Throughout our history we have remained committed to excellence in services. In today’s world of changing political and financial landscapes, we hold true to our vision of providing services that lead to meaningful lives for those we serve.


We provide mental health services to adults with a severe and persistent mental illness, children with a severe emotional disturbance, and individuals with a developmental disability, residing in the county.
