About Us

The Ohio Council is a statewide trade association representing more than 160 private and not-for-profit organizations providing community-based mental health, alcohol and other drug addiction treatment and family services throughout Ohio. The Ohio Council was established in 1979 and is governed by a 15 member Board of Trustees, composed of member organization chief executives.  Elected by the membership, the Board provides strategic direction for the Council and leadership to the organization’s committee structure.  The Ohio Council is funded primarily through a dues assessment of all member organizations, but also generates revenue through its various products and services and membership training events.
