Beginning May 1, 2017 Oakland County Community Mental Health Authority (OCCMHA) is officially being renamed Oakland Community Health Network (OCHN), and is utilizing the tagline: developmental disabilities, mental health, and substance recovery in its updated logo design.
The name change is inspired by ongoing concerns that the agency’s previous name did not accurately identify what services are available to Oakland County residents.
Another noticeable addition to the agency’s name is the word “network.” This change was made to better describe the agency’s operating infrastructure, which includes contract relations with more than 30 healthcare organizations and approximately 300 service sites across the county.
Additionally, in late summer, OCHN is moving its administrative offices from Auburn Hills to the office building it recently acquired at 5505 Corporate Dr. in Troy, near the I-75 and Crooks exit. OCHN’s Access services will continue to be located at the Resource & Crisis Center in Pontiac.
More information about OCHN’s name change and relocation will be communicated to the community through a variety of strategies. Information is also available on the agency’s website at www.oaklandchn.org or by contacting Customer Services at (800) 341-2003.
Oakland Community Health Network is the public mental health system responsible for identifying, influencing, and delivering services and supports to approximately 25,000 Oakland County residents, including individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities, adults with mental illness, children with serious emotional disturbance, and persons with substance use disorders. Most of these individuals have Medicaid.
OCHN’s current network of service providers include: Common Ground, Community Housing Network, Community Living Services, Community Network Services, Easterseals Michigan, Macomb-Oakland Regional Center, Oakland Family Services, Inc., and Training and Treatment Innovations.
