Recipient Rights

When you receive mental health services your rights are protected by Michigan's Mental Health Code and many other Federal and State Laws.  Staff are responsible to act in a manner that protects your rights when they provide services to you.  If you do not understand your rights, or if you have questions about your treatment, you should ask staff.  If you believe that your rights have been violated, you should tell the Rights Advisor/Officer at the location where you are receiving services.

Northeast Michigan Community Mental Health Authority

Alpena, MI 49707
