Helping Those Who Need Hope
The ongoing ripple effect of the pandemic, political polarization, economic and environmental uncertainty, and a nationwide mental health crisis are driving many of us to despair. We need hope now more than ever. Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network is committed to bringing us just that.
Through this wonderful, non-profit organization, people throughout Michigan who are facing a wide range of mental and physical health issues are connected with resources and providers who can help. Eric Doeh, CEO of the DWIHN, explains not only the range of resources available, free of charge to anyone who needs them, but talks about where and how to find these resources and how these services offer a second chance to anyone struggling to overcome their mental or physical challenges.
Michael Squirewell also joins us and shares his harrowing story of survival, rescue, and redemption from a life of poverty, crime, substance abuse, and cognitive as well as other severe mental health challenges—all through connecting with DWIHN. After long commitment and a lot of hard work, Mr. Squirewell has not only triumphed over his mental and cognitive health challenges, he has gone on to advocate for people just like him, as a Mental Health Ambassador for DWIHN—who he says, “…have become more than friends; they’ve become FAMILY”.
