Improving Mental Health in Michigan

  • Mental health is just as important as physical health. For those coping with mental illness, there are many services on the state and local level to help.

    The Mental Health and Wellness Commission was created in 2013 which the goal of making certain Michiganders living with mental health conditions could find a great quality of life, safety, and independence. This bipartisan commission worked to ensure that key recommendations to strengthen our mental health system became a reality. The commission was dissolved in 2015 by Governor Snyder after completing its duty of providing recomendations on how to improve the lives of people with mental health issues. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the Legislature are charged with carrying out its recomendations.
