Cincinnati, OH (December 14, 2020) – bi3, Bethesda Inc.’s grantmaking initiative, has awarded $50,000 to Central Clinic Behavioral Health for building capacity, educating clinicians and telehealth training.
“In today’s environment, it is important that the behavioral health therapists stay up-to-date with the latest technology to interact with patients,” says Dr. Walter S. Smitson, Central Clinic Behavioral Health president and CEO. “Thanks to the generosity of bi3, Central Clinic will be able to prepare for future ways that behavioral health services, including mental health and substance abuse services, are delivered and help even more individuals who need these services.”
CINCINNATI – Central Clinic Behavioral Health has received a $50,000 grant from the John A. Schroth Family Charitable Trust, PNC Charitable Trust. This grant will fund all services delivered in the Adult Services division. The adults served are in distress, diverse and lack access to mental health services due to income or other reasons. These services are offered both in person and by telehealth. The grant funds will be used to help clients now as well as after the pandemic.
Central Clinic Behavioral Health was launched in 1923, five years after the global pandemic of 1918. Whoever thought we would see another pandemic of that magnitude? As the president/CEO of one of the leading behavioral health nonprofits, it was an easy pivot for service delivery because of the strength and innovation of our team of experts.
