A message from our CEO:

We at NMHSI want to assure our patients and public that we are here for you. We are responding to rapidly-evolving recommendations regarding COVID-19 to assure the safety of our healthcare staff and community. We remain open and available to serve medical and behavioral health patients. We are pre-screening patients who present with fevers and cough, and triaging them out of our clinics for the most appropriate testing and follow-up. Responding to the recommendations of the Michigan Dental Association, we are now able to provide preventive dental services again, and are scheduling our existing patients whose appointments were cancelled previously. As always our medical, dental and behavioral health staff are available to our patients in our clinics and by phone at (231) 947-0351.

NMHSI is doing drive-through COVID testing at the Traverse City Clinic, 10767 E. Traverse Hwy. and at the Shelby Clinic at 119 S. State Street in partnership with Benzie-Leelanau Health Department and District Health Department #10. Anyone interested in being tested can call our COVID Test Hotline at 231-642-5292 for an appointment.

To support our patients and community who are suffering from increased anxiety and depression during COVID, we have a COVID Stress Warm Line. Call 231-655-3867 to speak to a counselor 8-4 M-F.

We will continue to post updates on Facebook and communicate changes to our patients through text, email, patient portal and phone contact.
