Information For Individuals Who Receive Services and Our Community

Due to the continuing spread of the COVID-19 virus, St. Clair County Community Mental Health is focusing on the safety and well-being of people who receive our services, our staff and the community.

We are asking anyone in need of CMH services to call the Region 10 Access Line at (888) 225-4447 before coming in to any of our locations. Most screenings for services can be done over the phone. If you have an Intake appointment scheduled, please call (810) 985-8900 and ask to speak to an Intake worker.

For those receiving services at CMH

Your Case Manager or Clinician will keep in touch with you by phone and will work with you on any standing appointments. Even though many of your services may occur over the phone for a period of time, we will work to ensure you are able to get the medications and other essential things that you need to stay healthy and well. All day programs, both ABA and CIS are closed until further notice.

For our Community

CMH will not be providing any community or provider trainings, nor will speakers be available to give presentations until further notice. This allows us to focus on providing essential services to those most in need during this time. ere to help.
