Self Determination Services

About These Services

Self‐Determination may be available for any person receiving services from Northeast Michigan Community Mental Health Authority (NeMCMHA), whether you are working towards recovery or increased independence.  Self-Determination allows you the freedom to hire the people you choose to provide the services and supports you need. 

Participation in self‐determination shall be a voluntary option on the part of the individual served and the Agency. Individuals served by the Agency may have the authority to select, control and direct their own services and supports arrangements through authority over the resources allotted in an individual budget.

You and your team will talk about your goals and preferences through your person centered plan and develop your Plan of Service (POS).  Your POS is used to authorize funding for supports and services.

Talk to your case manager if you have an interest in Self-Determination.
