Leadership Cohort 2022-2023


Mental Health America of Licking County

The March 2 session of the Children and Families First Council's 
Leadership Cohort 
focused on accessing Mental Health services. Leadership Cohort participants visited 15 different local providers’ tables and gathered information regarding their services.

Equitas Health

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.

Licking County Children and Families First Council staff thank Mental Health America of Licking County for presenting CFFC with the 2022 Marion S. Wells Mental Health Award. We also thank Penny Sitler and John Fisher for nominating CFFC Community Support Teaming Services for this award! 

We are honored to receive this award and we know that this recognition was only possible because of our partnership with the truly wonderful organizations in our community that work together to benefit children, families, and our community!
