The Thumb Community Health Partnership is located in the rural area of Michigan referred to as the Thumb.
The partnership encompasses Huron, Lapeer, Sanilac, and Tuscola Counties. Members include public mental health authorities, a private mental health agency, public health departments, hospitals, and a human service agency.
The Thumb Community Health Partnership will provide an integrated approach to identify key issues and establish a coordinated response to regional community needs.
To build a healthier community.
Living in a rural community is often perceived as idealistic. Rural Michigan is where many families go to play, relax, and enjoy the beauty of the Great Lakes.
However, the tranquil rural setting in the Thumb area of Michigan can mask significant health problems. Making health disparities worse are poverty, lower education levels, and limited income opportunities.
Beginning in 2018, our multi-sector partnership embraced the opportunity to join our neighbors, family, and friends on the journey to optimal health and a healthier community. We recognize that our collective resources and collaboration are critical to effectively address the persistent barriers and conditions that prevent all individuals from achieving greater levels of health.
