What We Do
Hegira Health is a 50-year leader in behavioral healthcare in Wayne County and one of Michigan's largest non-profit, freestanding, integrated behavioral healthcare organizations. We offer quality, individualized and rapidly accessible integrated treatment and prevention services. Hegira means JOURNEY, and we provide support along the journey of life. We believe life's pleasures and achievements are maximized after achieving WELLNESS FIRST.
A Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC), accredited by the Joint Commission and the American Association of Suicidology, our comprehensive service array is licensed and certified by MDHHS and staffed by professionals trained in the latest evidence-based practices. Leadership achievements include executive committee roles in significant local, state and national associations, memberships on statewide workgroups, healthcare honors, recognition from NAMI-MI, and participation in numerous learning and leadership communities. As a Zero Suicide Organization, we are leaders in bringing SUICIDE PREVENTION to our communities through education, training and treatment.
As the leader in Wayne County's adult CRISIS SERVICES, we partner with local law enforcement to meet community needs. Our Mobile Crisis Co-Response and Rapid Response Teams respond alongside police officers to provide community-based crisis intervention for those with behavioral health needs. Crisis teams co-respond 24/7, providing intervention and stabilization at the person's home or elsewhere, linking them to ongoing mental health support and related substance use disorder needs. These programs help produce better outcomes by providing a more appropriate response for people in crisis.
It's a priority to support our clients and those on the frontline of the COVID-19 pandemic. We understand the capacity to provide real-time support to persons experiencing trauma is critical. Through our Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM), our 24/7 on-site, mobile and telehealth crisis services and virtual training support, we are mitigating the impact, accelerating the recovery process, and continuously assessing our services to meet the community's needs.
