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.
