Refugees and Special Populations

Refugees and Special PopulationsRefugees and other special populations have unique mental health needs. OhioMHAS strives to use cultural competence when developing statewide policies, programs, and practices because services are most effective when delivered in a culturally competent way.

In addition, OhioMHAS uses a trauma-informed care approach to treatment and recover, which means that every part of our program understands the impact of trauma on the individuals we serve and we adopt a culture that considers and addresses this impact.

Additional information on Refugee Mental Health can be found on the Refugee Health Technical Assistance Center website.
