McDowell Healing Arts Center

McDowell Healing Arts Center


McDowell Healing Arts Center (MHAC) was established on October 15, 2015 by Melvin C. McDowell Jr., MSW, LMSW, CFLE. MHAC started out in a small room inside of World Overcomers Church in the city of Saginaw with one Therapist and very few clients. Today MHAC is a multi-location and multi-county agency. MHAC has offices in Saginaw County and Genesee County (Flint, Michigan). MHAC has several Limited and Fully Licensed Therapist and a partnership with a Board Certified Mental Health Nurse Practitioner who provides Telehealth/Telemedicine services to MHAC clients for medication management. MHAC also is a hub for Bachelor and Master Level interns who have a focus in Social Work, Psychology, and Counseling. MHAC is the Staff Development trainers for the Saginaw County Juvenile Detention Staff and Consultants and Trainers for multiple school districts and schools, including Saginaw ISD - Head Start. 


In addition to providing individual, family, couple, and group in-office counseling, at MHAC we have started a multi-county school based collaboration where services are being offered in the schools to both the K-12 & Alternative Ed students, but to their families as well. 


MHAC has customizable EAP services and packages that are offered to agencies, organizations, and businesses in the tri-cities. 


Our most recent venture at MHAC is utilizing Genetic testing to help our clients and the community be more informed on how their genetics play a role in medication choices, eating and exercise choices, risk levels for certain genetic challenges, and overall wellness.  


Mission: At MHAC we provide mental and behavioral health services in a loving, compassionate, and nonjudgmental way to our community and the world, while aiding people to discover their true potential.
