Community School Liaisons

The Community School Liaison program is an innovative program highlighting a partnership between Ashland County School District and the Ashland County Mental Health and Recovery Board. School is an important lifeline for a student, sometimes the only connection between a child’s family and the community resources they need to thrive. Liaisons provide behavioral health support and linkage to the students throughout the Ashland County public school district.  

Services are offered at NO COST to the school or families, thanks to Mental Health levy funding.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Giving yourself permission to take care of yourself is essential for good mental health care. None of us can burn the candle at both ends and up in a good place. We eventually wear down. When you feel yourself being emotionally tapped out, take time to refuel. This will look different for each of us. For some, getting away with family and friends is reenergizing. For others a weekend of solitude does the trick. However you are wired, make sure you keep a check on your emotional tank and when it is getting empty, take the time to recharge.

Being mentally healthy requires us to take a holistic approach. As Mr. Miyagi said in the 1st karate kid movie, “our whole life is a balance”. We need to make sure that we are taking care of our mind, body and spirit. We do that through activities and exercises that connect us to those domains of our life. Behavioral Health care is part of our mission at Appleseed.
