Mental Health Facilities in MichiganMental Health Facilities in Michigan

Mental health symptoms can affect anyone at any time, and they can range from mild to severe. Symptoms can also vary from sadness and crying spells to anxiety and sleep disturbance, and more. Both children and adults can suffer from mental health conditions. Mental health diagnoses are based on mental health symptoms. Examples of common mental health diagnoses include major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, and more. Recent surveys show that nearly 30 percent of people in Michigan have been reporting significant depression or anxiety, according to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and many more have experienced mental health symptoms in their life.

Access to mental health facilities can be difficult, which can be compounded by many other factors, including location of facilities, insurance issues, quality of care, and more. This is why we have created a map of mental health resources in Michigan. We want you to know where mental health services are available near you and offer options and resources to help you on your mental health journey. You do not have to cope with depression or other mental health issues on your own. Professional services such as counseling and therapy are available. Taking action to maintain your mental well-being is a positive step and we want you to know there are many options available.

First and foremost, there is no shame in seeking help if you are experiencing emotional distress. Here, at Disability Law Group, we believe that mental health treatment should be encouraged and viewed similarly to physical health conditions in terms of preventative care. We feel that it is just as important to be mindful of your mental health as your physical health. Seeking care or help is important not only in severe cases, but preventatively as well.

Signs of Mental Health Issues

Each mental health condition can present differently, with a wide-range of symptoms, depending on the person and their unique circumstances and experiences. Being familiar with the common warning signs of possible mental health issues can help you recognize whether there is a need to seek help and possibly even emergency care, depending on the situation. Unaddressed mental health issues can have a detrimental effect on physical health as well.

Some common indicators of possible mental health symptoms and conditions listed by the National Alliance on Mental Illness include:

  • Persistent feelings of sadness
  • Confused thinking
  • Excessive worrying
  • Feeling hopeless
  • Mood swings that affect relationships
  • Difficulty concentrating

Facts on Mental Health in the Military

Mental health conditions can affect anyone at any time, including both children and adults. The rate of mental health disorders among veterans are significantly higher than in the general population. Many veterans experience trauma during military service and have trouble readjusting to civilian life. Highly stressful events such as combat or a violent assault can cause a veteran to develop post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, substance abuse, or psychological effects related to sexual assault, including Military Sexual Trauma (MST).

The largest study of mental health risks among U.S. military members found that rates of mental health disorders such as major depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and intermittent explosive disorder are much higher among service members than civilians.

Regardless of whether a military service member served overseas or at home, veterans may face mental health challenges that affect their relationships, employability, and ability to readjust to civilian life. The good news is that veterans do not have to confront these challenges alone.

Many mental health services are available to veterans, including peer support from other veterans, counseling, therapy, and medication. Veterans may receive treatment at a nearby VA facility in Michigan or reach a health care provider online through a VA telemental health appointment and/or in-person depending on availability and preference of the veteran.
