WCCMH History

In early 2016, WCCMH began an involved strategic planning process which included feedback from Washtenaw community members, consumers and their families, staff, contracted providers, the WCCMH Board and other community stakeholders to help form the Mission, Vision and Values for the organization.  It was approved by the WCCMH Board December of 2016.
