They welcome other organizations to join them in spreading the word that mental health is something everyone should care about by using the May is Mental Health Month toolkit materials and conducting awareness activities.

Click the map to find your county’s board informationOhio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities County Map for Contact Information

The Ohio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities (OACBHA) is the statewide organization that represents the interests of Ohio’s county Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Boards at the state level. The Association works with a variety of governmental bodies including the Ohio General Assembly, the Office of the Governor, other statewide office holders, cabinet agencies, partner associations, and along with individuals in recovery and their families. OACBHA works to provide education, develop policies, and seek support for initiatives that will expand and enhance mental health and substance abuse prevention, treatment, and recovery support services throughout Ohio. Most importantly, OACBHA gives the Boards a forum to address statewide issues and provides Boards with the means to communicate their positions and concerns with a single voice.

Ohio currently has 50 Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health (ADAMH) Boards. These boards are statutorily empowered to plan, develop, fund, manage, and evaluate community-based mental health and addiction services. Federal, state and local funds are utilized by local Boards as they work to ensure that mental health and addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery support services are available to individuals and families in communities throughout Ohio.

Day 24 image 31 Days of Mental Health Awareness May 2020 Richland County Ohio Spirituality and Mental Health

Dr. Daniel Amen in his book The End of Mental Illness discusses a Four Circles Approach to Mental and physical health. He wrote “Always think of people as whole beings, never just as their symptoms.” He insisted that whenever we evaluate and treat anyone, we should take into consideration the four circles of health and illness: 

 

Dr Daniel G Amen M.D. Four Circles Approach to physical and mental health

Biology: how your physical body and brain function

Psychology: development issues and how you think

Social: social support and interactions, and your current life situations

Spiritual: your connection to God, the planet, and past and future generations; and your deepest sense of meaning and purpose

 

“In the spiritual circle, lack of purpose or connection to something larger than yourself and not living up to your own moral code can create mental illness.” Dr. Amen - Bright Mind Tip

Also in his book, Dr. Amen shares Dr. Viktor Frankl’s work. Dr. Frankl, a psychiatrist, World War II concentration camp survivor, and author of Man’s Search for a Meaning, believed there were 3 ways to create meaning:

  1. Purposeful work or being productive- asking questions such as “Why is the world a better place because I am here? Or “What do I contribute?”
  2. Love for the people who are central to our lives.
  3. Courage in the face of difficulty-shouldering whatever difficult fate we have and helping others shoulder theirs.

Dr. Amen suggests engaging in spiritual practices such as prayer, meditation, worship and service fosters all 4 of the circles of health.

Richland county offers many different places of spiritual worship. While it has been difficult during COVID-19 to meet face to face many of these organizations offer online services and virtual gatherings. We encourage you to include spiritual support in your wellness plan.

Day 28 31 Days of Mental Health Awareness May 2020 Richland County Ohio Choose Your Perspective

QTIP Response Management TechniqueRichland County Mental Health & Recovery Board Chair, Kym Lamb, shared a method she uses to capture rogue thoughts and realign her attitude with reality.

“Stress, exhaustion, worry, illness and other situations can cause us to jump to conclusions, make assumptions, or trust feelings over facts, causing us to misinterpreted what others say. I use the QTIP method to remind myself to PAUSE before I respond in anger. 

QTIP stands for Quit Taking It Personal

When someone says something that I immediately feel defensive or angry about, I remind myself not to take it personal.

Then I consider the following questions:

  • Is what they say true?
  • Why does it bother me?
  • Do I need to adjust my attitude?

If it is true, what changes do I need to make in my behavior or beliefs?

If it is not true, then the thought doesn’t get any more of my attention.

Many times things bother me because of timing not intention. Long days, short nights and my own past can cause me to respond negatively. I know most people are not trying to personally attack me and the ones that are, are not people who I should give weight to their opinions.

If I wouldn’t go to them for advice, why would I worry about or accept their criticism.

Lastly, I choose my battles, and I find most of my perceived battles are clashes of perspectives. Taking the time to learn why or how someone responds they way they do is often more enlightening than what they say.

What method do you use to manage your mind?"

Day 30 image 31 Days of Mental Health Awareness May 2020 Richland County Ohio Meet the ACT Team from Catalyst Life Services

ACT (assertive community treatment) is an intensive wrap around team that consists of a team leader, therapist, case manager, substance abuse specialist, peer support specialist, nurse, nurse practitioner and psychiatrist that all work together to provide services to the severely mentally ill clients with a psychotic disorder that many also have substance use disorders.

These clients have struggled with traditional treatment services and often experienced frequent hospitalizations, legal issues and homelessness. Many struggle with meeting basic needs in the community without these intensive services. The team meets daily to review the current 44 clients on the team and provides frequent services to these clients to help assure stability and assistance to hopefully decrease struggles in the community.
