THE OHIO COUNCIL OF BEHAVIORAL HEALTH & FAMILY SERVICES PROVIDERS

 
is a statewide trade and advocacy association that represents 150 private organizations that provide alcohol and other drug addiction, mental health, and family services.  The Ohio Council provides four core sets of services to its members:  policy and legislative advocacy; member support and technical assistance; product and service development, generally through endorsed vendor programs; and educational opportunities.


2018 Annual PAC Campaign

 

The Ohio Legislature plays a significant role in the finance and policy issues that impact
access, capacity, and sustainability of behavioral health and family services in Ohio. 
One way that the Ohio Council builds and strengthens our relationships
with public office holders is through networking events. 

Your support of the Ohio Council's Political Action Committee (OC-PAC) is vital,

giving us the ability to network at these events.

The Ohio Council's "Policy Solutions for Addiction and Mental Health Crisis" 

Click here for the publication which outlines Ohio’s crisis with rising overdose deaths and suicides, the unmet needs of children and youth with emotional disorders, and the toll that all of this takes on individuals, families, employers, and state resources.  You will find a statement of providers’ priorities and a focus on improving access to services, adequately financing behavioral healthcare through parity enforcement, and growing the community behavioral health and family services workforce.  The policy solutions address prevention, access to treatment, systemic issues across the continuum of care, improving positive outcomes through recovery supports, and building workforce capacity.  Please share this document in your organization, local communities, and in your meetings with your legislators - highlighting those policy solutions that are most relevant to and impactful for your organization.
