Behavioral Health

At Access East, we practice whole-person care, embracing the philosophy that the compartmentalized “silo” approach to care is inadequate. We believe a patient’s behavioral health and primary-care services must be integrated to be effective, because true health improvement addresses the complex interactions between mind and body.

Our Behavioral Health Staff

Our skilled people-centric team includes licensed clinical social workers, nurse care managers and community coordinators. Meet them here.

Local Mental Health Resources

Medicaid-covered behavioral health services in our 34-county service area are coordinated by two of the state’s six different LME/MCOs (Local Management Entities/Managed Care Organizations): Trillium Health Resources and Eastpointe. These MCOs do not generally provide direct care to Medicaid patients, but rather help establish relationships with providers for mental health, substance-use and intellectual/developmental disability (IDD) services.

Consult the Regional Behavioral Health Map to see which MCO covers your own county.

Hotline for Behavioral Health Help

The national Suicide and Crisis Lifeline is available 24/7, connecting you to a network of more than 200 crisis centers providing free, confidential emotional support. Call or text 988, or for online chat:
