State Opioid Response VISTA
The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) is the state agency in Ohio charged with providing statewide leadership of a high-quality mental health and addiction prevention, treatment and recovery system that is effective and valued by all Ohioans. During their service year, the VISTA member serving with OhioMHAS will work to help implement the State Opioid Response Grant. The Ohio State Opioid Response project will focus on building a community system of care (prevention, early intervention, treatment, and recovery support) that emphasizes service integration between physical health, emergency health care, behavioral health care, criminal justice and child welfare. During this year of service, the VISTA member will become familiar with how a state agency administers a large-scale grant project to address a public health crisis. The VISTA member will be a vital member of the team working to ensure the success of this project.
