Crisis Academy

Ohio's first Crisis Academy - "Building On Our Strengths" - helped professionals from around the state and across the continuum of care explore the full array of services available in an effective state crisis-response model. Crisis response is one aspect of the overall continuum of care that will benefit from the collaboration of all community sectors. Please see the resources below to learn more about the overall program and presentations delivered at the 2019 Crisis Academy.
