DWIHN Mobile Crisis Services
DWIHN Clinical Care Center
The Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network is transforming its current location on Milwaukee Avenue, in the heart of the New Center area in Detroit, into a Crisis Care Center. This will be a facility where adults and adolescents can receive short term crisis intervention services. It will add 36 beds to DWIHN’s Crisis Continuum and will be a 24-hour Clinical Care Center. Construction began in Spring 2022 and will be completed by Winter 2023.
DWIHN Regional Integrated Care Facility
The DWIHN Integrated Care Center Facility will offer a comprehensive array of services for medical, dental, mental health, substance use services, in addition to a 24-7 walk-in behavioral health crisis services center. Strategically located on West 7 Mile Rd between Southfield and Evergreen; the facility would have the capability to serve Wayne County and adjacent communities through a public private partnership which would enable all partners to address behavioral health crises in the tri-county region. The area is geographically desirable with access to major roads and freeways; but still offers regional transportation for vulnerable populations.
A Crisis Center can provide:
24-7 Walk-in Crisis Assessment, Treatment, Community Services Coordination
24-hour mobile and telephonic clinical pre-admission review (PAR) and disposition determination
Adult community-based face-to-face Mobile Crisis Stabilization
Children’s crisis intervention and assessment services
Downriver Communities Crisis Care Center
There are approximately 1.7 million people in Wayne County and according to experts, an area that size should have at least three crisis centers to help children and adults with their mental health and substance use needs. DWIHN is planning to open a Crisis Care Center in the Downriver area in the coming year. Click below link for more information.

"We have been working on this mobile application for over a year and are excited to offer this to people in Detroit and Wayne County who currently receive or who may need assistance on their mental wellness journey."
The mobile app offers multiple features including: finding a mental health or substance use disorder professional in your neighborhood, where mobile outreach community resources can be found, a free mental health assessment, how to donate to member events, professional development training opportunities, transportation, medication assistance and community resources.
The myDWIHN mobile app is available for both Apple and Android phones and can easily be downloaded from the Apple or Google Play Stores.
"When people are struggling with mental health, substance use, suicidal thoughts or disability related concerns, we want the community to know we are here and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week," said Doeh.

DWIHN is the largest and most diverse Community Mental Health public safety net in the state of Michigan serving 75,000 people with mental illness, substance use, intellectual and developmental disabilities and children with serious emotional disturbance. DWIHN works with over 300 Service Provider Partners.
DWIHN was awarded a $ 400,000/a year grant for five years to launch a Zero Suicide Initiative to eliminate suicides in Wayne County. The program will do this by system-wide culture change, workforce training, comprehensive screening, evidence-based treatment, and care management. The belief around Zero Suicide is that suicide deaths under the care of health and behavioral health systems are preventable.
Our goal is to launch Zero Suicide evidence-based practices at our direct Community Mental Health Service Provider (CMHSP) functions such as the Crisis Services that will be launching soon, as well as across network.
DWIHN will be completing a project plan based on the goals and timelines established in our Project application starting with formation of Zero Suicide administrative and clinical council functions within the next two months.
We will incorporate all elements of the Zero Suicide model in the form of enhanced screenings,
trainings, enhancements of electronic medical records to assure utilization of best practices.
