Washtenaw County Community Mental Health is about to expand its mental health and substance abuse services.
Starting May 1, a WCCMH team will offer ongoing treatment services to any county resident who is unable to find a community provider in a timely manner. That's regardless of their insurance type or ability to pay for services.
"This will be a team that can respond to a crisis," said Trish Cortes, executive director of WCCMH. "And not only just respond to the crisis, but also help stabilize individuals until we can get them an appropriate provider."
