The Hancock County Board of Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Receives Large Grant

The Hancock County Board of Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) received a $4 million grant which they plan to use to transform the “system of care” for mental health for children and families. The project, called Community Early Emotional Support, Assistance and Wellness for Children and Families is being implemented by the Family Resource Center of Northwest Ohio. It aims to both expand and coordinate existing services, create new services for family and peer support, for transitional-aged youth and mobile crisis. Goals for the grant include connecting youth to the system of care through universal screening, timely response and mobile outreach and engagement as well as educating community members about risk and protective factors. Treating mental health issues early is key.
