Welcome to the Geauga County Board of Mental Health
and Recovery Services Website

The Geauga County Board of Mental Health and Recovery Services, as the duly constituted local planning and funding authority, is responsible for the distribution of funds and administration of public mental health, alcohol and drug addiction services in Geauga County. It is the primary responsibility of the Board to develop, promote, and monitor services, facilities, and programs that are responsive to the behavioral health care needs of the citizens of Geauga County.

It is the philosophy of the Board to support programs that are recovery based, defined by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration as, "a journey of healing and transformation enabling a person with a mental health or chemical abuse problem to live a meaningful life in a community of his or her choice while striving to achieve his or her full potential". With the support of a local property tax levy and funds from Federal and State sources, the Board works to ensure that quality mental health and substance abuse services are available to all residents of Geauga County.
