Future Housing Needs

As you may know, affordable, accessible housing is very scarce in Ottawa County. We recognize that this lack of housing paired with a critical shortage of staff to support individuals with disabilities has made finding appropriate alternative housing very difficult. A workgroup comprised of parents, Community Mental Health of Ottawa County, Disability Network Lakeshore, and Oasis Community of West Michigan has been meeting to address this problem. The purpose of this survey is to assess our consumers and their families' thoughts about where they would like to live in the future. Thank you for taking a few minutes to complete the survey. If you are a parent/guardian of more than one individual with disabilities, please complete a survey for each individual.

  • COVID-19 and Mental Health
    FEATURED RESOURCE

    Stay Well Program Video Series

    Increased stress and anxiety related to the current COVID-19 outbreak is normal and expected. It is important that you take care of your mental health during this time. Simple things like taking a walk, deep breathing, and taking an occasional time out from the news and media are good ways to give yourself a break and relax. There is plenty of information out there about ways to cope with stress including this article from the CDC.

    Taking care of your mental health needs is very important during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people are feeling anxious, scared, stressed out, and angry. Kids might feel confused and disoriented due to changes in their routine. Parents are feeling overwhelmed. Social distancing can cause people to feel lonely and disconnected. There are many resources available in Ottawa County to help individuals and families get through these tough times. Most of these services are available through telehealth or online. Telehealth means services, such as counseling or case management, are provided by phone, email, or virtual meetings instead of face to face.

    Individuals who feel they are in a mental health crisis and need help immediately are encouraged to call Community Mental Health of Ottawa County’s 24-hour Crisis Line at 866-512-4357 or TTY 711.

  • Social Recreational Programs

    CMHOC is pleased to offer four different social and recreational programs for adults with disabilities who live in Ottawa County. Social and recreational activities help to enhance an individual's health and well-being and play an important role in bringing meaning to one's life. These programs are being funded by the mental health millage that was passed by Ottawa County voters in March, 2016 and will help to replace some of the opportunities lost due to funding cuts. Staying connected to friends and avoiding isolation is important for all people, especially the most vulnerable in our community. Involvement in the social and recreational programs is voluntary and will not impact a person’s medically necessary Medicaid services. These services are intended to add opportunities and choices for people with disabilities throughout the community.

    CMHOC is contracting with four agencies to operate social and recreation programs in each quadrant of Ottawa County. Each program has their own calendar and advanced registration is required. Some of the activities being offered include dance and exercise classes, bowling, movie nights, sporting events, and museum visits. If someone is interested in attending one of the programs they can contact that organization directly. The contact information is listed below.
