Spring 2022 Newsletter

Welcome to our spring 2022 newsletter. As we get ready for the first summer in two years with COVID-19 waning, we want to thank our patients/clients and personnel for being so flexible during this time in our history. Services are now being delivered in-person and via telehealth, which continues to greatly improve access to behavioral health care in the greater Cincinnati area.

Central Clinic Behavioral Health has received its seventh consecutive accreditation from CARF International. This accreditation is for a three-year period, and it applies to all of the Clinic’s services. CARF accreditation is an indication of Central Clinic Behavioral Health’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of lives the persons served and is the highest possi- ble accreditation level. Additionally, the report applauded Central Clinic’s personnel on being dedicated to its mission and continued that everyone has “worked together as a team to perse- vere throughout the pandemic. The organization has found creative, but necessary, ways to ensure that persons served are connected to the program through telehealth services and has also made in-person services a viable option.”

FY 2020-21 Annual Report

Letter from Chair of the Board and CEO

hope. It is the foundation of the human spirit.

Welcome to the 2020-21 annual report and what a year it has been. The pandemic continued; funders supported us more than ever; personnel continued to deliver important services both in-person and via telehealth. All of us are grateful to everyone who helped our patients/clients throughout the year – thank you.

This annual report will share stories of hope. When hope is missing for a length of time, an individual not only loses interest in his/her surroundings but eventually loses the will to live. Personnel are uniquely educated experts to help people process feelings of hopelessness. It is what they do every day so they can remove barriers to a spirit that can utilize its talents and eventually feel joy about oneself and about life.
