With the advent of integrated health care, Detroit Central City Community Mental Health, Inc. (DCC) has been evolving into an agency that promotes healing the whole body. Starting with Run for Literacy 2012, DCC has messaged the public not only about the stigma of mental health, but also the importance of physical health…speaking about wellness and healthy choices.
This year Cruise for a Cause: Healthy Choices will reinforce this message as funds raised will go towards programs that foster these values. On the Ovation Yacht, DCC guests will cruise Lake St. Claire and the Detroit River to the music of Persuasion, enjoy a strolling dinner, complimentary beverages and new acquaintances.
In concert with this message, DCC will soon be opening its first truly integrated health center, offering “one stop shopping” to consumers, individuals whose income is less than 200% of the Federal Poverty Level, the un/underinsured, Medicaid, Medicare, men, women, children, domestic violence victims, veterans, the homeless, individuals living in public housing and other at-risk populations.
Cruise for a Cause 2013 sails from Jefferson Beach Marina, 24400 Jefferson Ave, St Clair Shores, MI 48080 on Thursday, August 22nd from 6-10 pm. Tickets ($150.00) are limited to 300, and are available at http://www.dcccmh.org. Sponsors presently include Gateway Community Health, Silverman Companies, Comerica Bank, BHPi, PCE Systems, LarC Properties, Inc., AT&T Pioneers, Hamilton Adult Foster Care Homes, LLC and Michigan State University-College of Osteopathic Medicine.
