Leadership Cohort 2022-2023
Mental Health America of Licking County
The March 2 session of the Children and Families First Council's
focused on accessing Mental Health services. Leadership Cohort participants visited 15 different local providers’ tables and gathered information regarding their services.
CFFC's Clinical Committee, hosts the annual Leadership Cohort with the purpose of:
Creating a county-wide leadership network of providers with in-depth knowledge of child and family serving systems.
Building relationships across systems of care to encourage collaborations that support families, providers and systems.
Strengthening individual leadership skills through problem solving and dissemination of knowledge gained.
Expanding provider knowledge of community challenges and opportunities.
A time to pause and rest
As winter comes to an end, take time for some self-care and enjoy the tips and encouragement in the latest edition of the SOS Newsletter.
