Physical and Mental Health Resources

Michigan State University is located in East Lansing. Therefore, the resources listed here are located in that general area. It is beyond the scope of this website to list the physical and mental health resources available in the state or across the country.

If you are unsure where to go for help, ask your family doctor. Others who can help are:

  • Mental health specialists, such as psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, or mental health counselors
  • Health maintenance organizations
  • Community mental health centers
  • Hospital psychiatry departments and outpatient clinics
  • Mental health programs at universities or medical schools
  • State hospital outpatient clinics
  • Family services, social agencies, or clergy
  • Peer support groups
  • Private clinics and facilities
  • Employee assistance programs
  • Local medical and/or psychiatric societies.

You can also check the phone book under mental health, health, social services, hotlines, or physicians for phone numbers and addresses. An emergency room doctor can also provide temporary help and can tell you where and how to get further help.
