Every Community Mental Health (CMH) receives money from the State of Michigan to provide mental health services in nursing facilities. The type and frequency of services are determined by the resident’s diagnosis and level of need. The decision to accept services is made by the resident or their guardian. There may be a charge for some types of treatments.
The local CMH is one potential provider of mental health services. Other agencies, the facility staff or private practitioners may also provide mental health services in the nursing home.
Mental health treatment is intended to enhance and compliment services being provided by the nursing facility, aiding in the resident’s recovery.
