Macomb County Community Mental Health (MCCMH) wants to work with you to improve your physical health, as well as your mental and emotional health! Many physical illnesses are impacted by mental health, and many mental health conditions are impacted by physical health. On this page, we want to give you some ideas and resources to help you take care of all the parts of your health! Check back often for updates and new information, and talk to your therapist or case manager about healthy ideas specifically for you.
Finding a Doctor
It's important to have a Primary Care Doctor to help arrange preventative care and keep illness manageable, when it does occur. If you have Medicaid or Healthy Michigan, you can get help finding a Primary Care provider by calling the Customer Service phone number on the back of your MIHealth card. If you receive services from MCCMH, your therapist or case manager will help you find a primary care doctor if you need one.
New News! If you don't have access to primary healthcare, you can get the care you need at MyCare Health clinics. There's a MyCare clinic inside of MCCMH's First North, at 43740 Groesbeck, Clinton Township. Click here for more information about MyCare!
Your Michigan Medicaid Healthplan can also help you find a doctor, and can even help you get transportation to your doctor appointments! Click here for a printable list of the Medicaid Healthplans in Macomb County and their contact information.
Managing Chronic Conditions
Managing ongoing health conditions can be a challenge. But taking care of things like high blood pressure, diabetes, weight, and heart conditions can add years to your life! Finding support on your health managment journey is important, too. Check the resources below for ideas and help!
Eating Healthier and Moving More
What we eat and how much we move has a significant impact on mood and well being, as well as overall health. Even simple changes can make a big difference. Swap out a piece of fruit for a sugary snack. Use herbs and spices on food instead of salt. Walk to the mailbox instead of driving to it. Exercise can be fun! Need some suggestions? Check out the sidebar for ideas.
Take Care of Your Total Self
Taking care of yourself is more than just taking care of your physical self! Make sure you are taking care of your whole self every day -- spend some time each day doing something you enjoy, getting some exercise/ movement/ activity, and talking with someone you care about.
Have you been thinking of giving up smoking? If you smoke, giving it up is the single best thing you can do to improve your health -- lungs begin to improve within days of quitting, and continue to heal over time. Your risk for serious illnesses like cancer, heart disease, and stroke will go down, too! It's a winning choice.
