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.
