OhioMHAS

The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) Office of Prevention and Wellness provides statewide leadership for Ohio’s county Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Services/Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services (ADAMHS/ADAS) Boards. Through grant funding awarded to the State of Ohio under the federal 21st Century CURES Act, OhioMHAS pursued the Community Collective Impact Model for Change (CCIM4C) Initiative, funding 18 communities – 11 communities funded in 2017 (Cohort 1) and 7 communities funded in 2019 (Cohort 2) – from across the state to participate. The Department also partnered with the Training, Technical Assistance, and Evaluation Team and Prevention Institute to form the CCIM4C Leadership Team.

The Training, Technical Assistance, and Evaluation Team provide training, technical assistance, and evaluation support for Ohio’s CCIM4C Initiative. The team is comprised of faculty and professional staff from Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, research scientists from the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation (PIRE), and technical assistance and subject area experts. The team, in partnership with Prevention Institute, is developing a comprehensive, trauma-informed approach to address the opioid crisis, creating all of the necessary content and materials to move the Initiative forward. The team is also engaging the funded communities in project-based learning and guiding them through an enhanced strategic planning process, while providing training and technical assistance for the essential elements of a strong evaluation framework – data collection, needs assessment, logic modeling, and data-driven strategic planning.
