Royal Oak, MI, August 27, 2018 – Judson Center has been awarded a $500,000 grant from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund that will allow the 94 year agency to provide a more holistic approach in care by integrating its current behavioral health care services with primary health care.
Since 1996, Judson Center has been providing behavioral health programs to children and families who are coping with mental, behavioral or emotional disorders and substance abuse at its Warren location in Macomb County. The Michigan Health Endowment Fund grant will allow Judson Center to add a primary medical care office in the same office as its Behavioral Health clinic, making it easier to coordinate care for patients.
“Providing integrated care will help individuals achieve both optimal mental and physical health by coordinating efforts from both sides, the primary care physician and therapists. The Michigan Health Endowment Fund grant is truly transformational not only for the children and families we serve, but also the community -at- large. We look forward to helping our current clients and new ones lead healthy and successful lives. ” Lenora Hardy-Foster, President and CEO.
