Gogebic Community Mental Health is located in Wakefield, MI, a rural community in the pristine western Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The agency, under contract with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and a member of the NorthCare Network Prepaid Inpatient Health Plan, provides specialty mental health services to adults with serious mental illness, children with severe emotional disturbances, adults and children with intellectual/developmental disabilities and/or co-occurring disorders.

Our region doesn’t have a big city. But our communities tend to have a little of everything and never a lot of chaos. You can live modern.  Up here, there are a lot of people living life just the way they want to in a place they can’t replicate anywhere else. If you have to, you can reach Chicago, Detroit or Minneapolis in no more than a few hours by air. But you’ll always come back here to be yourself.
