LANSING, MI (AP)--   The state of Michigan is holding public forums on ways to strengthen its Medicaid-funded behavioral health and developmental disabilities system. 

Forums start Wednesday in Detroit, according to the Department of Health and Human Services. Others are scheduled Thursday in Grand Rapids, January 22 in Marquette and January 30 in Saginaw. A virtual forum is planned for February 6.

The department will provide an overview of its proposal and answer questions.

Information gathered during the forums will help the state design a system that best meets the needs of residents who rely on the services.
