To all of the members of our African American community and other people of color - we see you, we hear you, and you matter to us. We have seen the damage that multigenerational trauma has on health, pervasive poverty, mental health and addiction issues.

We condemn the violence that the African American community has had to endure. We support the unity and love that has been displayed at the protests and marches for George Floyd and so many others who have died at the hands of another, just because of the color of their skin.

Sincerely,

April Caraway
Executive Director

After careful consideration, the Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board has decided to cancel the 23rd annual levy fundraiser golf outing. For the past 22 years, the Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board has looked forward to hosting the annual golf outing and we have enjoyed spending the day with our colleagues and supporters outside of the normal work routine. Due to the ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19, we have not been able to do the necessary planning and we are not certain that we can ensure the safety of participants. We look forward to seeing you at our next golf outing on July 30, 2021. Please mark your calendars! Click here for more information.

Help is Now a Text Message Away

Ohio is making it easier for individuals who are experiencing a stressful situation to find immediate help, 24/7 with the launch of a free, confidential, statewide Crisis Text Line. Any Ohio resident who needs help coping with a crisis can now text the keyword “4hope” to 741741 to be connected to a crisis counselor. Specialists are on stand-by to provide a personal response and information on a range of issues, including: suicidal thoughts, bullying, depression, self-harm, and more. The specialist helps the user stay safe and healthy with effective, secure support. The crisis text line is funded by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities.


Providing hope and help...

All of us know someone whose life has been impacted by a mental health issue, substance abuse or addiction. In fact, one out of four Americans will experience a mental health concern during his or her lifetime. Mental illnesses cannot be overcome through willpower and are not related to a person's character or intelligence. They are medical conditions that disrupt a person's thinking, feeling, mood, daily functioning and ability to relate to others.

Addiction involves craving for something intensely, loss of control over its use, and continuing involvement with it despite adverse consequences. Addiction changes the brain, first by subverting the way it registers pleasure and then by corrupting other normal drives such as learning and motivation. Although breaking an addiction is tough, it can be done. Nearly one in 10 Americans are addicted to alcohol or other drugs.

Fortunately, there is hope and help for people, thanks to the Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board and its partner agencies. The Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board plans, funds, monitors, and evaluates mental health and substance abuse services in Trumbull County, Ohio. For 52 years we have ensured that a safety net of services is available for all our residents. In Trumbull County, funding for these services comes from state and federal agencies, grants and local levy dollars. If you are a Trumbull County resident you will not be turned away for help because of a lack of insurance or an inability to pay. Please contact one of our provider agencies directly from the “local agencies” link to get the help you need.
