OhioMHAS is committed to helping individuals with mental illness and substance use disorders explore options for transitioning to the community. Sometimes individuals with disabilities, including behavioral health, receive treatment in institutions (such as nursing homes and hospitals) and are not living in the most integrated setting.
The goal of Community Transitions is to support sustainable, person-centered transitions so individuals can live and recover within integrated communities.
