Saginaw County Community Mental Health (SCCMHA) is a local, independent, governmental unit serving the greater Saginaw County area, a Community Mental Health Services Program and has been a mental health authority under contract with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services since October 1, 1997.

In 2021, it was named a Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. As a CCBHC, SCCMHA is a “one stop wellness center” and offers a full range of services that create access to care, stabilizes individuals in crisis and provides the necessary treatment for those with mental illnesses, intellectual/developmental disorders, children/youth with emotional disorders and substance use disorders regardless of their insurance coverage. 

SCCMHA is a behavioral health provider but also a specialty network. The network is comprised of organizations that provide professional services, but also housing and other support services and interventions in both office and sitebased locations as well as in the homes of consumers and their families.

Payment of Services

Asking for help for yourself or a loved one can be difficult enough, do not let any worry about payment for service be an obstacle to seeking treatment and support. Based upon your service needs we will work with you to determine commercial insurance, and/or Medicaid or Medicare coverage for your service costs. We also have a sliding fee schedule based upon your income and household size that we will use to help you with the cost of your services if you are uninsured or under insured.


Embracing Difference with Dignity and Respect

At SCCMHA we strive to embrace diversity of race, ethnicity, military culture, gender and age. We provide training to members of our staff and network to help them obtain cultural competencies to help ensure the best service for you. Everyone deserves to be valued and cared for, and at the SCCMHA Network, all people are welcome through our doors. We are dedicated to providing services to everyone in a culturally sensitive manner and we especially accept members of the LGBTQIA+ community as equals and treat them with respect.
