The Ohio Coalition of Excellence (OCoE) is a new designation sponsored by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, designed to recognize excellence for coalitions who work in the behavioral health or a related prevention field.  Becoming an Ohio Coalition of Excellence illustrates that your coalition is using local data and evidence-based prevention strategies to create meaningful change in your community.  Applications for the designation, accepted throughout the year, will be reviewed periodically by coalition leaders and experts from across the state, based on the review criteria and scoring rubric included in the application.  Any coalition addressing behavioral health issues at a community level can apply to be an Ohio Coalition of Excellence. Behavioral health issues include, but are not limited to, substance abuse, violence and suicide. Pieces of the Ohio application process closely model the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) Coalition of Excellence process, which provides a proven framework for coalition success measures.
