Who We Are
Mental Health Recovery Board Serving Warren & Clinton Counties (MHRBWCC) is the local board of mental health and addiction services (also called an ADAMHS board). As outlined in Ohio Revised Code Chapter 340, MHRBWCC plans, funds, monitors, and evaluates services and programs for people seeking help to recover from mental health and/or addiction issues. Here's how we do that:
MHRBWCC works with community stakeholders such as clients, family members, provider agencies, and members of the community to plan the system of care so that it is cost effective, high quality, and culturally competent
MHRBWCC provides funding to this system through a local levy, federal and state allocations, grants through partnerships with both public and private entities.
Through regular reviews and agency audits, MHRBWCC looks at how provider agencies are doing on service and program delivery to ensure quality and effectiveness.
MHRBWCC looks at various statistics and outputs that we require from the agencies with which we contract, and make necessary changes to make sure all clients are receiving quality care.
The Board formed in 1969, after Ohio lawmakers passed legislation creating community mental health boards. Over the years, MHRBWCC and other boards were granted additional responsibilities, forming what are known now as alcohol, drug addiction, and mental health services (ADAMHS) boards. Ours is one of several multi-county boards in Ohio, although most are single-county boards.
Today, MHRBWCC works alongside contracted provider agencies to ensure that strong mental health and addiction services are available for residents who need them.
