the project

While it may be hard to believe mental health services are not accessible to everyone.  There are even individuals with health insurance but unfortunately do not have the benefit of mental health services. Finances should not determine your healing journey. Ohio Mental Health Matters seeks to eliminate this burden and barrier for our neighbors.


We want to raise funds for individuals, couples or families who do not have health insurance benefits so that they may still engage in therapy services. Dialogue around mental health is slowly moving away from a taboo topic.  As the conversation continues to shift, Ohio Mental Health Matters would like to be a resource to those who are seeking care but are not able to do so.


If you so graciously decide to donate to this project you will be taking part in someone’s healing process!

the steps

-Create a referral form and market the program to local neighborhoods and schools.

-Identify potential clients who do not have health insurance OR mental health care is not a benefit of their health insurance plan

-Pair this client with the most appropriate, most competent mental health provider

-Engage the client in the intake process or ongoing mental health sessions. 

-Engage the client in case management services to assist them with obtaining health insurance
