The Columbiana County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board has been serving the 112,075 residents of Columbiana County since 1969. The Board contracts with service agencies to provide treatment and support for persons with mental health and substance abuse problems. The Board plans, funds, and monitors a comprehensive system of mental health and substance abuse services for both children and adults.
Public accountability for the system is assured through a citizen governing board composed of consumers, family members, professionals, and civic leaders from all walks of life. The board helps the community to "care for its own" thereby building a healthier community. By working with a variety of community based agencies to promote prevention, education, and treatment services, the Board strives to keep families intact and functional and helps individuals who are isolated due to their illnesses or disabilities.
