Mental Health Services (MHS)
Mental Health Services (MHS) strives to best serve some of Cuyahoga county’s most vulnerable individuals by combining three specific aims: resolving crisis, ending homelessness and overcoming trauma. We provide Crisis Assessment and Intervention services throughout Cuyahoga County, Ohio, and have done so without interruption since 1995. We offer a 24/7 Suicide Prevention Hotline for children and adults whose safety and health are threatened by mental health challenges or overwhelming stressors. MHS staff reach out to children and families whose lives have been shattered by violence, working closely with those who have experienced or witnessed sexual and/or physical abuse, kidnapping, suicide, homicide or rape. We provide the intensive clinical services needed to help overcome the trauma and to break the cycle of violence in homes and communities across Cuyahoga County.
MHS believes that anyone experiencing homelessness can obtain housing with the appropriate level of assistance or supportive services. Through participation in our outreach, shelter, psychiatric, and supportive services, MHS aims to promote sustained recovery, independence, and community participation in the lives of those they help.
