A letter from our Executive Director...

Dear Appleseed Family,

We understand that our services are critical to the overall health and wellbeing of the clients and community we serve. We want to be clear that our services are available telephonically and, if needed, face-to-face. We are also quickly working on additional options for clients to virtually meet with their psychiatrist, counselor, or case manager to ensure that services with us remain uninterrupted. We are taking all precautions at our center to ensure the health and safety of staff and our guests during the COVID-19 epidemic.

  • Disinfecting and cleaning has increased.
  • Hand sanitizer is made available in both the lobby and in staff work areas.
  • All staff have been instructed to wipe down their offices with Clorox wipes daily, at minimum.
  • Staff and guests are asked to complete a brief health screening and have their temperature assessed by one of our nurses prior to the start of their work day or appointment.
  • Staff who are sick are asked to remain home.
  • Any staff who are not displaying symptoms but have evidence that they may have come in contact with the virus will be asked to self-quarantine and work from home.

We encourage you to reach out to your psychiatrist, counselor, or case manager with any concerns you may have, discuss treatment options, and to learn ways to cope with anxiety, stress management, and to protect your mental health and wellness during this time.

As a reminder, we offer the following services M-F from 8am-5pm. Home-based services are limited at this time. Please contact your Appleseed provider for more information by calling the main office at 419-281-3716.

  • Adult and Child Psychiatry and Pharmacological Management
  • Individual and Family Counseling
  • Homeless Prevention Services
  • Substance use disorder therapy/counseling/case management
  • Supported Employment
  • Specialized mental health services for youth
  • Early childhood parent mentoring (SPARK Program)
  • School Liaison services (linking families to services)
  • Employer Assistance Program

We also offer 24-hour mental health crisis hotline support at 419-289-6111 and 24-hour rape crisis/domestic violence support at 419-289-8085.

Finally, we would like ensure you are accessing accurate COVID-19 related information by visiting

Please reach out to us with any questions or concerns. We are here for you. We will get through this together. We are committed to walking with you every step of the way.
