Rebuilding Community Behavioral Health Resources


In the four years prior to the Kasich Administration, Ohio's mental health and addiction services system was in turmoil. State funding for mental health had been reduced by nearly 20 percent. The Kasich Administration reversed this trend by increasing mental health funding and extending Medicaid coverage to more individuals needing behavioral health services. The Governor's Blueprint for a New Ohio reforms the Medicaid behavioral health benefit package, strengthens housing and other community supports, and improves care coordination through managed behavioral health care.
