How to become a contract care provider:

MHRB contract care providers must offer cost-effective mental health and/or substance use services to residents within Clark, Greene, and Madison Counties. All clinical services must be certified by Ohio Mental Health & Addiction Services and have national certification(s) for services in the continuum of care. The vast majority of our providers are non-profit organizations and prioritize those who are most in need. We strongly prefer care providers that are located within our region.

All potential contract care providers must either respond to a request for proposal (RFP) or submit an Agency Allocation Request (AAR). The AAR includes questions about the organization’s financial status, historical background, administrative stability and staff retention, population served, and available services. It is critical that new contract care providers can show that they are able to fill an unmet need related to mental health or substance use services as defined within the continuum of care. Contact Michelle Humphrey to learn more or begin the process of becoming an MHRB care provider.

In addition to being eligible for federal and state funding that is distributed by MHRB to facilitate quality service, contract care providers also may receive local levy dollars to provide additional services to local residents. They also receive invitations to contract care provider-only events, including specialized training and advocacy opportunities, and get unique marketing perks. Finally, when funding becomes available, MHRB contract care providers often are preferred recipients.
All MHRB contract care providers must submit an Agency Allocation Request (AAR) annually and follow the reporting schedule as defined in MHRB’s annual contract. Additional reporting is required by OhioMHAS, based on grant funding guidance. Reports help MHRB to best coordinate an effective system that delivers quality care. Agencies also must adhere to MHRB brand guidelines and are required to participate in county-wide levy campaigns when applicable. Additional information about the requirements of MHRB contract care providers is available upon request.
