Mental Health Innovation: Behavioral Health Urgent Care

Summit Pointe, the county mental health authority in Calhoun County, Michigan, is banking that a new approach to its population's mental health needs will mean a healthier community.

In this episode, Summit Pointe CEO Jeannie Goodrich discusses the opening of its First Step behavioral health urgent care center on Monday, March 22, 2021. The concept works to adapt the idea of urgent care medical centers to behavioral health, providing a more responsive approach to finding and providing mental health services in Calhoun County.

Could the concept catch on elsewhere?
