Mental health board has several vacancies


Lucas County commissioners are accepting applications to fill several vacancies on the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board.

Prospective candidates must have experience working in criminal justice, marketing, veteran services, and public health. Alternatively, they must be licensed mental health professionals or have had family members receive publicly funded mental health services.

The Mental Health and Recovery Services Board, which meets on the third Tuesday of each month, aims to promote mental health, prevent substance abuse, and facilitate recovery for mentally ill patients and alcohol or drug dependent individuals in Lucas County.

Seeking to appoint volunteer boards that reflect the diversity of the community, commissioners invite interested candidates to submit an application form, along with a detailed resume.

Applications can be found at the board’s office at One Government Center, Suite 800, in downtown Toledo, or can be requested by calling 419-213-4500.

A printable version of the application can be downloaded from the Lucas County commissioners' Web site.

Candidates must return the complete application and resume to board clerk Jody Balogh, at the address listed above by July 8.
