The CMHSP Participants include Bay-Arenac Behavioral Health, Clinton-Eaton-Ingham Community Mental Health Authority, Community Mental Health for Central Michigan, Community Mental Health Authority (located in Gratiot County), Community Mental Health Authority (located in Tuscola County), Huron County Community Mental Health Authority, Ionia County Community Mental Health Authority, LifeWays Community Mental Health Authority, Montcalm County Community Mental Health Authority, Newaygo County Community Mental Health Authority, Saginaw County Community Mental Health Authority, and Shiawassee County Community Mental Health Authority.  Beginning January 1, 2014, MSHN entered into a contract with the State of Michigan for Medicaid funding and entered into subcontracts with the CMHSPs in its region and Substance Use Disorder Providers for the provision of Mental Health, Substance Use Disorder, and Developmental Disabilities services.
