FY 2021-22 Annual Report

Letter from Chair of the Board and CEO

Welcome to the 2021-22 Annual Report… Celebrating 100 Years of Positive Community IMPACT!

For the prior annual report year, we were in the throes of the COVID-19 global pandemic – services pivoted from live to telehealth and our funders truly stepped up in their support of our patients/clients. This year we are pleased to report that the clinical staff delivered services in person at all of our 11 locations. It has truly been a year of impact. As you read the various stories in this report, you will have a sense as to how the patients/clients have been impacted. Not only is there a primary impact, but also a secondary one (families and their communities) as well. Last year, we improved the lives and provided hope to 17,468 adults, children, and their families. We strive to connect the right service to the right person at the right time.

2023 marks the 100th anniversary of Central Clinic Behavioral Health. What began in 1923 has evolved over the past 100 years into an award-winning behavioral health services organization. Established in 1923, CCBH was the first mental health nonprofit organization in the State of Ohio and one of the only community clinics serving both children and adults. Central Psychiatric Clinic, its original name, received national attention because it provided community-based mental health services for children — a unique approach for treating patients at that time. Stay tuned to our social media channels as we continue to tell our story.

There are so many people to thank for our successful year – our referral sources, healthcare partners, school-based centers, and all of our funders. All of us are truly grateful.
