The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) is one of 18 principal departments of state government. The department, the largest in state government, is responsible for health policy and management of the state's publicly-funded health service systems. An estimated 1.5 million Michigan residents will receive services this year that are provided with total or partial support from MDCH. The department was created by an executive order issued on January 31, 1996 by Michigan Governor John Engler. The executive order consolidated the Department of Public Health, the Department of Mental Health and the Medical Services Administration, the state's Medicaid agency. The Office of Drug Control Policy and the Office of Services to the Aging were consolidated with MDCH in subsequent executive orders.


The Michigan Department of Community Health distributes hundreds of public information materials and posters on such topics as diseases, dental care, water, child health, family planning, nutrition, and substance abuse.
