OHIOCARES is a collaboration of the Ohio Adjutant General, the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, community behavioral health boards and provider organizations  to improve access to timely and appropriate community services to veterans, service members and their families.

A key purpose of OHIOCARES is to enhance the “safety net” of community behavioral health services available for military personnel and their families and to complement the services available through the Department of Veterans Affairs and Vet Centers by linkages with county alcohol, drug and mental health boards and behavioral health care providers.

OHIOCARES is guided by four objectives:

  • Maintain and grow the network of behavioral health providers available to service members, veterans, and their families
  • Train and educate providers on behavioral health issues related to the military
  • Coordinate behavioral health services for Service Members, veterans, and their families
  • Promote awareness about OHIOCARES and behavioral health issues related to the military.
