Mental Health Solutions
For Youth, Young Adults, Families & Communities

MindPeace works to unite the right teams so youth, young adults, and their families
can get the mental health care they need.

MindPeace collaborates with many community partners like Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, the Hamilton County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board, the Community Learning Center Institute, school systems, government agencies, and providers to advocate for customized mental health solutions to better serve our children.

“Cincinnati Public Schools’ partnership with MindPeace is immeasurably beneficial to our students and families.”

MindPeace has worked tirelessly to establish and improve school mental health teams by collaboratively identifying local needs and unique barriers to treatment, as well as facilitating team problem solving for these issues.

The mental health network, established by MindPeace, has created a much-improved system for easily accessing services. These services have helped to improve school culture, behavior support, and understanding of mental health throughout our district. CPS’s partnership with MindPeace has enabled me to perform my role of school psychologist more effectively, as I can easily connect families with ongoing mental health treatment that is part of available supports in each Cincinnati Public School.”
