The Ohio Community Recovery Support Planning Council (OCRSPC) advises OhioMHAS on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Block Grants and advocates for persons with mental health and/or substance use disorders. More than half of the members are required to be persons with personal or family experience with mental health or addiction. The Council also includes representatives of providers, other state agencies and advocacy organizations. Each year, Planning Council reviews Ohio’s Block Grant Plan and provides a list of recommendations to the department, and head of SAMHSA.
