In this webinar, a panel of current and past leadership and people with lived experience of community mental health services in Ashland County, Ohio, will tell the story of how their framework’s principles and values have been operationalized. Panelists will provide information and inspiration for advocates, administrators, and service providers interested in how community mental health services can promote quality of life and well-being at the local level.

This webinar will showcase a framework for community mental health services developed by the Mental Health and Recovery Board in Ashland County, Ohio. Using a three-legged stool model, the Mental Health and Recovery Board has operationalized person-centered practices throughout the county service system. The primary principle of the framework is borrowed from the Hippocratic Oath: Do no harm. The three legs, or sets of values, are:

  1. Recovery and Resiliency
  2. Trauma-Informed Care
  3. Medication Optimization
