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 a Psychiatrist, who oversees our Behavioral Health program, while serving also as Access East’s Medical Director, along with several Social Work Care Managers. Meet them here.

Local Mental Health Resources

Medicaid-covered behavioral health services in our 29-county service area are coordinated by three different MCOs, or managed-care organizations: Trillium Health Resources, Eastpointe, and Cardinal Innovations Healthcare. These MCOs do not provide direct care to Medicaid patients, but rather help establish relationships with providers for mental health, substance-abuse, and intellectual/developmental disability services.

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