We know that access to quality health care service IS life-changing.

Hegira Health, Inc. (HHI) has been a behavioral health care leader in Wayne County for nearly 50 years—and is one of Michigan's largest non-profit, freestanding, integrated behavioral health care organizations. HHI's goal is to ensure the availability of quality, individualized, and rapidly accessible integrated behavioral health treatment and prevention services to infants through older adults of all income levels. Hegira means journey and we are here to provide support along the journey of life—life's pleasures and achievements are maximized after achieving WELLNESS FIRST.

Accredited by the Joint Commission and the American Association of Suicidology, Hegira Health's comprehensive array of services are licensed and or certified by MDHHS and staffed by professionals trained in the latest evidence-based practices. Leadership's achievements include executive committee roles in pertinent local and national associations, memberships on statewide workgroups, honors in Crain's Notable Women in Health Care, recognition from NAMI-MI, participation in numerous state and national learning communities, and participation in the transformational leadership training program, Leadership Detroit.

Hegira's leadership championed Wayne County's first organized First Responder Wellness program, providing innovative and community-specific mental health crisis services for law enforcement and firefighters/EMTs. As a Zero Suicide Organization, Hegira Health is a leader in bringing suicide prevention to our communities through education, training and treatment.

It is our top priority to support our clients, staff and those on the frontline of the COVID-19 crisis. We know that 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 teletherapy crisis services and virtual training support services, we are working to mitigate the impact, accelerate the recovery process, and assess the need for additional or alternative services for all.
