Mental Health Crisis

CMHA-CEI Has an array of processes to address the person's concerns about their care. Our goal is to address the person's concerns about their care. Our goal is to address any care concern that you or your family member might have as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our staff are empowered and committed to making that happen. There are three informal and six formal appeals and grievance processes that may be utilized by the person or their representative. You may do these one at a time or all of them at the same time.

  1. Talk with your case manager/supports Coordinator/therapist about your concerns.
  2. If your concern is not resolved talk with the supervior of your Case manager, supports coordinator/therapist
  3. If your concern is still not resolved, talk with the director of your program.
