The Board shall provide planning, funding, and evaluation of the development of high-quality, cost-effective, and comprehensive services. These services will adapt to the changing needs of the community and those seeking services, fulfill the mandates of Ohio Revised Code and promote a person’s voice and choice, while advocating for the continued development of person-centered mental health and addiction services with a focus on growing and preserving a legacy of hope and success within our community.
