The Mental Health Association in Michigan
is the only statewide, non-governmental agency concerned with the
broad spectrum of mental illness across all age groups.

PIC

    Michigan Partners in Crisis is a coalition of organizations and jurists dedicated to enhancing access to quality, clinically appropriate treatment and support services and settings for children and adults experiencing emotional disorders and mental illnesses. The Partners in Crisis coalition focuses on more than mental health issues.

    This new coalition seeks mechanisms that reduce the over-reliance on the criminal justice system as a response to mental illness and emotional disorders, while preserving the well-being and safety of consumers, families and the general public.

    As you can see from the listing of our Advisory Board members, distinguished judges, prosecutors, mental health professionals, law enforcement officers and others have joined this important cause. We are pleased to invite organizations and jurists to join our statewide coalition dedicated to doing something about this problem – Michigan Partners in Crisis.
