The Detroit Wayne Integrated Health Network is compassionate and committed to the 75,000 children and adults it serves in Detroit and Wayne County. As President and CEO, Eric Doeh leads the organization in its mission of providing integrated behavioral health services and supports to the community.

DWIHN’s partnership with the Detroit Police Department appears to be a game changer. Doeh talks with Michigan Chronicle Digital Anchor Andre Ash about how DWIHN’s collaboration and training with DPD is enhancing officer tools when interacting with mentally challenged citizens.

The pair also touch on the importance of discussing mental health in the Black community, emotional wellness for sport athletes, and the organization’s services for individuals with serious mental illness, children with serious emotional disturbance, people with autism, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and those with substance use disorder.
