The current mental health care system in Michigan is failing families

This petition had 2,513 supporters


My Girlfriend and her Ex husband just lost their son to mental illness after being turned away by CMH because they had private insurance and not state provided medicaid. CMH told them to go to any ER where he would get the same evaluation and 72 hour hold. This turned out to be untrue. They were told at the ER that that service was not provided as they had no psychiatrist on staff. Their son was evaluated by a Resident and he deemed him to be calm and rational and sent him home with his parents, with instructions to follow up with his counselor and family doctor.
