A Message from our President & Chief Executive Officer, Jeff O'Neil

Dear Friends,

Whether you are a client of Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services or someone who believes in the importance of our work, I want to thank you. Thank you for your support during this unprecedented time. Thank you for your patience as we work through a new normal.

This has been a difficult time – for the people we serve who count on us for their mental health and addiction needs, as well as for our staff who are going above and beyond to stay in contact and offer services to those who need help.

We continue to meet the challenges of how to manage operations while keeping our clients and staff safe. Yet, every day I am amazed by our staff and their commitment to do whatever is necessary to offer support to our clients, and the clients who are putting forth the effort to ensure that we all get through this together. 

We are currently offering tele-health services where appropriate and are continuing with our medication assisted treatment programs, which includes our new mobile injection van. This service allows our nurses to reach isolated clients so that they can receive critical services like medications, injections, and other medical assistance.

It is also imperative that we continue to reach out to those who are presently not being served. The stress of this pandemic means that more people will need access to mental health and addiction programs.  We need to spread the word that we are here and we are ready to help.  Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services has been a part of this community for over 40 years and we are ready to face the challenges that ultimately will continue to present themselves because of COVID-19.

We are continuing to update any changes to our programming and services on this page (below), as well as share additional resources on the virus and what to do if you think you've been exposed. If you have any additional concerns or questions, or cannot find the information you are looking for, please contact your service provider.

New clients should call 513-345-8555.

What we have been able to accomplish over the past 2 months was a combined effort across all divisions. It has not been easy but the belief that our clients must always come first, is evident in the diligence and adaptability of our staff who continue to make a difference in people's lives. Their perseverance and commitment makes me proud to be a part of Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services.

Stay safe and healthy,
