Who we serve: priority populations

Behavioral Healthcare Partners of Central Ohio realizes that funding which enables us to provide services is limited. Therefore our resources are focused, as priorities, on the following populations:

  • Youth with severe emotional disturbance (SED)
  • Adults with severe mental disability (SMD)
  • Youth with severe substance abuse/dependency
  • Adults with severe substance dependency
  • Adults with severe substance abuse
  • Youth with non-severe emotional disturbance
  • Adults with non-severe mental disability

Our focus is on care that is efficiently provided, delivers effective outcomes and is accessible in the right amount, at the right time and for the right duration.
