WHO WE ARE...
The Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Seneca, Sandusky and Wyandot Counties was created in the early 1970’s through consultation with the three Boards of County Commissioners, which determined which county would be Host County. Because of the central location of Seneca County, it was chosen to be Host County, which also meant it would be listed first (rather than alphabetically) in the Board’s title.
The passage of House Bill 648 in 1967 signaled the beginning of a community-based system of care by establishing Community Mental Health Boards throughout Ohio. Further progress and commitment to community-based services was demonstrated through the passage of Senate Bill 160 in 1980; followed by Senate Bill 156, The Mental Health Act of 1988. Finally, the passage of House Bill 317 established Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services Boards while maintaining separate Community Mental Health Boards in Ohio’s largest counties. All other Boards were named Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Boards, which has morphed into Mental Health and Recovery Services Board.
