Organizational Member Since October 2019

ECMC is committed to ending the stigma of mental illness and we join the dedicated partners of the Anti-Stigma Coalition to advocate for our friends, neighbors and relatives who face this challenge in their lives. At the Regional Center of Excellence for Behavioral Health, ECMC’s empathetic caregivers work to assist patients with mental illness and various psychiatric issues. From emergency and inpatient care to ambulatory services, including our new Help Center that provides urgent care service for walk-in mental health treatment of adults in crisis who do not require psychiatric emergency treatment or inpatient care, ECMC joins the continuum of care providers in our community to provide access to quality, compassionate care.
