In 2014 the Clermont County Board of DD took steps towards becoming a certified Mental Health provider in Clermont County.  With growing demand to support individuals with Developmental Disabilities and Co-Occurring Mental Health concerns, these services will help meet that demand in Clermont County.  The goal is that by offering these services, there will be fewer individuals finding themselves in high risk situations that jeopardize their health and safety.

We are one of the first of 88 counties in Ohio to provide mental health services to individuals eligible for our DD services.
