leadership from persons with mental illnesses or addictions and their significant others, including their involvement in the design, provision, and evaluation of services.
recovery for all experiencing mental illnesses or addictions, along with opportunities for them to participate fully in their communities.
accountability - bother service accountability through the use of best practices and fiscal accountability through the efficient use of resources.
leadership from the community at large in planning and in achieving our goals.
Children and adults at risk for, or having, mental illness or addictive disease, will have the opportunity for prevention services, growth, recovery, and inclusion in the community. Stigma will be eliminated, and the community will understand, accept, embrace, and support people's efforts to enjoy a quality of life that includes family and friends. They will have access to services and supports of their choice which are respectful and understanding of their unique culture.
All county residents will have access to information and supports that encourage the adoption of health practices which enhance their mental health and prevent substance abuse.
Columbiana County communities will have agreed upon methods for addressing mental health and addiction issues that increase the likelihood that this vision will be realized. In so doing, communities will feel safe from harm caused by untreated or preventable mental illness, substance abuse, and addictions. The taxpayers of Columbiana County will understand, support, and be satisfied with the way in which public dollars are spent to support this vision and with the benefits derived from their tax dollars.
