Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities Announces Expanded Telepsychiatry Project

Ohio's Telepsychiatry Project has an overall intent to provide high quality psychiatric services to people with co-occurring mental illness and developmental disabilities residing in remote areas. The initial offering was to all but the top 13 counties based on size, as the goal was to reach underserved populations throughout Ohio. In order to serve this particular group, the project will accept referrals for children and adolescents under the age of 18 from all county boards, effective immediately.
