Washtenaw County Community Mental Health

Our tradition of services to children and families extends back to the Child Guidance movement of the 1940’s. 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.


  • We provide high quality, effective integrated behavioral health, physical health and social support services to persons with chronic and/or severe mental illness, co-­‐occurring disorders, intellectual or developmental disabilities, substance use disorders and severe emotional disorders.
  • We provide leadership and education to the community.
  • We develop and provide models to make these integrated services available to all residents of Washtenaw  County


  • Individuals have universal access to and participation in high quality, integrated healthcare

 WCCMH has permanent service locations in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, but also provides services at partner sites across the county, including Dexter, Chelsea, Whitmore Lake, etc.
