As the county draws near to the one-year anniversary of implementing the Summit County Mental Wellness Plan, KPCW takes a look at the progress of the plan.
Last November, Summit County Council ratified a Summit County Mental Wellness Plan. The plan has five strategic goals, focusing on access, equity, recovery and reintegration, success and sustainability and prevention and education. The five goals also have nearly 50 objectives to accomplish over the 5 years.
Summit County Mental Health Director Aaron Newman says he views the first year as a success.
