The Wood County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board, in conjunction with the Children's Resource Center, has been awarded a $97,200 grant to help youth with mental illness and addiction.
The 12-month grant, which begins in July, will create a mental health/juvenile justice liaison position for the county. The liaison will coordinate resources and treatment services in attempt to prevent youths with mental illness and addiction from becoming involved with the criminal justice system.
The grant was given by Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and was announced last month at the ADAMHS board meeting.
According to the state, "A significant percent of individuals incarcerated in county, local and regional jails have diagnosable mental illness and addiction. The ability of jails to treats individuals with behavioral health disorders is limited. Problems exist with access to psychiatric services, counseling and other evidence-based treatments in many parts of the state."
