MHRB ANNOUNCES NEW CEO
The Mental Health & Recovery Board of Clark, Greene and Madison Counties (MHRB) welcomes Dr. Greta Mayer as the new CEO, effective January 1, 2016. Greta joined the program staff of MHRB in 2007 as an Assistant Director. In 2013, she was promoted to Director of Prevention and Community Engagement. Greta worked in a clinical capacity with youth and families for eight years at the Greene County Educational Service Center prior to joining the Board staff. Greta is a graduate of Wittenberg University, University of Dayton, and the University of Cincinnati.
Among her outstanding accomplishments is her leadership of three depression and suicide prevention coalitions. The coalitions became the focus of local efforts to collect and disperse data and provide information, awareness and education about depression and suicide in the three county area. Significant strides have been made in recognizing the need for the treatment of depression as well as the need to care for those who are survivors of suicide.
Greta has also been the driving force behind the introduction, implementation and expansion of the evidence-based PAX Good Behavior Game™ (GBG) throughout Clark, Greene and Madison Counties. GBG promises lasting gains in the improvement of the mental, emotional and behavioral health of children and communities who embrace it.
As she looks ahead to her tenure as MHRB CEO, Greta says “I feel honored to work with an excellent, dedicated Board and a highly skilled staff. I look forward to expanding upon the successes gained during Dr. Kent Youngman’s leadership and preserving the strong community support for our local behavioral health system.”
“Improving our ability to engage clients and their families before, during, and after treatment is critical. Strengthening our community partnerships and promoting preventive strategies are also needed to keep our communities as healthy and safe.”
The ROSC (Recovery Oriented Systems of Care) initiative is an especially exciting venture for the MHRB area. ROSC values a community-based, collaborative approach to recovery, focusing on preferences, quality of life, family involvement and the flexibility to select the services most helpful to people in recovery. ROSC means that long-term planning for life in the community is occurring.
The MHRB is conducting a survey to gauge community perceptions of ROSC. We value your participation in this survey and will publish the results on this webpage when they are available, probably late spring. To take the survey, go to www.mhrb.org and click on Evaluation Survey.
NEW DIRECTOR OF PREVENTION and COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
Tammy Collins, PhD, OCPSII, has joined the MHRB staff as the Director of Prevention and Community Engagement.

Collins brings more than 20 years of experience in administration, research and evaluation in the fields of substance abuse, mental health, justice and education to her new role as Director of Prevention & Community Engagement at the Mental Health and Recovery Board of Clark, Greene & Madison Counties.
She earned a Doctorate of philosophy in human development and family science with a cognate area of adolescent behavioral health risk and protective factors from The Ohio State University and holds a Master of Arts in counseling and Bachelor of Arts in journalism/public relations, both from Marshall University. Collins previously served as a deputy director at the Ohio Mental Health & Addiction Services and chief of prevention at Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services.
