Coleman Access Center
Information/Referral/Crisis 24/7 HOTLINE
for immediate assistance
May is the month to step in and step up to reduce stigma about mental health! When we think about cancer, heart disease, or diabetes, we don’t wait years to treat them. When people are in the first stage of those diseases and are beginning to show signs or symptoms like a persistent cough, high blood pressure, or high blood sugar, we try immediately to reverse these symptoms. We don’t ignore them. In fact, we develop a plan of action to reverse and sometimes stop the progression of the disease. So why don’t we do the same for people who are dealing with potentially serious mental illness? The most frequent barrier to seeking help is social stigma. Start a conversation, today!

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 three Americans will experience a mental health concern during his or her lifetime. In addition, about 1.1 million Ohio adults are addicted to alcohol or other drugs.
Fortunately, there is hope and help for people recovering from these devastating conditions, thanks to the Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board and its partner agencies. The Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board, the Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Services Board for Trumbull County has been the leader of a caring, effective network of provider agencies for over 40 years. We believe in a community model of mental health and recovery.
The Trumbull County Mental Health and Recovery Board plans, funds, monitors, and evaluates mental health and substance abuse services in Trumbull County, Ohio. In fulfilling our statutory responsibilities, we ensure that a safety net of services is available for all our residents. A dedicated, highly qualified staff of nine people, an 18 member Board of Directors, 20 provider agencies in Trumbull County and many out of county agencies support our efforts.
Today in America:
One in four adults—about 57.7 million Americans—experience a mental health disorder in a given year.
Despite effective treatments, there are long delays between the first onset of symptoms and when people seek and receive treatment.
Fewer than one-third of adults and one-half of children with a diagnosable mental illness receive mental health services in a given year.
In the United States, the annual economic cost of mental illness is estimated to be $79 billion. Approximately $63 billion reflects the loss of productivity as a result of illnesses.
However, there is hope...
With proper care and treatment, 70 to 90 percent of persons with mental illnesses experience a significant reduction of symptoms and an improved quality of life.
