ACCESS

 

Common Ground’s ACCESS Team provides free eligibility determination screenings for entry into the public specialty mental health system through Oakland County Community Mental Health Authority (OCCMHA). ACCESS offers screenings for child, adult and developmental disability populations and also provides referrals for non OCCMHA services for anyone in Michigan.

These screenings can take place over the phone or on a walk-in basis or, service applicants can initiate an ACCESS screening by calling Common Ground’s Resource & Crisis Helpline at (800) 231-1127.

The screening process is approximately 60 minutes in duration. Access has clinicians who are multi-lingual. In addition, the Language Line and Deaf CAN are available for language translation when needed. People determined eligible are offered choices within available providers. People determined ineligible are provided referrals to other resources. Additional assistance accessing referrals is available through the Association for Children’s Mental Health for children/families and through the Common Ground ACCESS Team for adults. For more information, please contact Common Ground’s Resource & Crisis Helpline at (800) 231-1127.
