Mental Health Conditions

A mental illness is a condition that affects a person's thinking, feeling or mood. Such conditions may affect someone's ability to relate to others and function each day. Each person will have different experiences, even people with the same diagnosis. Recovery, including meaningful roles in social life, school and work, is possible, especially when you start treatment early and play a strong role in your own recovery process.

A mental health condition isn’t the result of one event. Research suggests multiple, linking causes. Genetics, environment and lifestyle influence whether someone develops a mental health condition. A stressful job or home life makes some people more susceptible, as do traumatic life events like being the victim of a crime. Biochemical processes and circuits and basic brain structure may play a role, too.

Recovery and Wellness

One in 5 adults experiences a mental health condition every year. One in 17 lives with a serious mental illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. In addition to a person's directly experiencing a mental illness, family, friends and communities are also affected. Half of mental health conditions begin by age 14, and 75% of mental health conditions develop by age 24. The normal personality and behavior changes of adolescence may mimic or mask symptoms of a mental health condition. Early engagement and support are crucial to improving outcomes and increasing the promise of recovery.

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.


The Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board is accepting applications for two Board member openings.  More information about the Board and an application may be found at the Board of Directors Link.

Providing hope and help...

All of us know someone whose life has been touched by a mental health concern or substance abuse. In fact, one out of four Americans will experience a mental health concern during his or her lifetime. Mental illnesses are biologically based brain disorders. They 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 23 million Americans—almost one in 10—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 48 years we have ensured that a safety net of services is available for all our residents.
