The Judson Center Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) will predominantly serve the communities of Sterling Heights, Fraser, Warren, Roseville, Center Line, Clinton Township, Mount Clemens, Eastpointe, and Saint Clair Shores in Macomb County; and Madison Heights in Oakland County in Michigan, though services will be available to any patient in need.
Across this designated region, only 58% of individuals with any mental illness (AMI) and 14.8% of individuals with a substance use disorder (SUD) are receiving care. More specifically, among Macomb County residents 18 years and older, 15.6% experience poor mental health, 19.5% experience depression, 17.5% experience AMI, 4.2% experience serious mental illness (SMI), 6.5% experience a major depressive episode, and 3.8% experience suicidal thoughts. However, only 16.7% receive mental health services. Additionally, the Macomb County opioid deaths crude rate per 100,000 is 78% higher than the state rate.
In compliance with CCBHC criteria, Judson Center will be prepared to deliver the following behavioral health services within 4 months of the grant award:
• crisis mental health services, including 24-hour mobile crisis teams, emergency crisis intervention services, and crisis stabilization;
• screening, assessment, and diagnoses, including risk assessment, to determine acuity of needs and connect patients to appropriate care;
• patient-centered treatment planning including risk assessment/crisis planning;
• outpatient mental health and substance use services (including HIV, viral hepatitis, and toxicology screens) based on Evidence-Based Practices (EBP) and biological, social, culture, and psychological sensitivities;
• outpatient primary care screening and monitoring of key health indicators/health risk to assess treatment effectiveness and coordinate ongoing care;
• psychiatric rehabilitation services via a team focused on improving patients’ quality of life (i.e. independent living, employment, education, socialization) and well versed in medication management;
• targeted case management to access additional care supports;
• and community recovery aid including peer and family supports.
Through Clubhouse and Assertive Community Treatment partnerships with Macomb County Community Mental Health, a Direct Collaborative Organization (DCO) for this project, we will also provide opportunities for therapeutic individual and group interactions as well as assistance with employment, housing and other community recovery supports.
We expect the Judson Center CCBHC will serve 1500 unduplicated individuals in Grant Year 1, and 2300 unduplicated individuals in Grant Year 2. During the grant period, we expect to achieve the following health impact goals:
• Less than 10% of the number of mental health and SUD clients will require readmission to hospital or out-of-home placement within 30 days of discharge;
• Deliver outpatient mental health services to 150 new individuals per quarter who did not receive services within the prior 6 months;
• By the end of 2021, reduce the number of those served who experience a critical event (e.g., hospitalization, death, suicide, overdose, etc.) to =1%;
• 95% of clients served will have Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) measures documented on a quarterly basis;
• 50% of clients served will present a reduction in self-reported symptomology.
