Jackson- LifeWays Community Mental Health (LifeWays) has been selected as Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) and will receive $3,886,311 in new funding to meet the growing need for mental health and addiction services in Jackson and Hillsdale counties. LifeWays is joining 18 other certified clinics providing critical behavioral health services across Michigan.

This funding is a result of the Excellence in Mental Health and Addiction Treatment Act authored by Senator Stabenow and Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO). This law established new Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics, transforming the way behavioral health and addiction treatment services are delivered in Michigan and across the country. Through this designation, LifeWays will be required to provide a comprehensive set of behavioral health services including 24/7/365 crisis services; outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment services; immediate screenings, risk assessments, and diagnoses; and care coordination with emergency rooms, law enforcement, and veteran groups.
