Welcome to the fall 2022 newsletter. So much has impacted the behavioral health field broadly and right here at Central Clinic Behavioral Health.
The COVID 19 pandemic continues to impact our world, and within the behavioral health system it has created an unprecedented need for behavioral health and substance use disorder services. The Ohio Council tells us that marijuana use is at record levels among young adults. In November 2022, the Hamilton County Mental Health Levy will be on the ballot, and it is our responsibility as a community to support it. This levy supports local services for people from all walks of life to make our communities healthier and safer.
Anxiety, depression, suicidality, and drug overdoses all increased during the pandemic and do not show signs of abating. Given the enormous increase in people from all demographics and all backgrounds requesting help, we must be able to increase our capacity to provide mental health counseling to those in need.
