Millage funds rural service delivery expansion

As of July 1, the CARES team had received 250 outpatient service referrals from Ypsilanti (115), Ann Arbor (88), Saline (11), Dexter (6), Whitmore Lake (5), Chelsea (3), and Milan (3).

While most of the referrals are currently coming from the county’s urban areas, there continues to be unmet need in the county’s rural communities, where residents may lack transportation to travel to Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti for care.

To meet this need, CARES team staff members have begun to place staff in Dexter at the St. Joseph Mercy behavioral health outpatient facility (Thursdays) and in Chelsea at the St. Joseph Mercy behavioral health outpatient facility (Fridays).

Over the next several months, the CARES team will also place staff in Manchester (on Tuesdays) and Whitmore Lake (on Tuesdays and Thursdays). Memoranda of understanding with facilities in these townships are currently in development.

To learn more about rural service delivery times and locations, and to schedule an appointment, contact WCCMH’s 24/7 hotline at 734-544-3050 or 800-440-7548.
