The Appalachian Children Coalition is a first-of-its-kind regional partnership of Educational Service Centers; Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health (ADAMH) Boards; and K-12 school districts across 24 Southeast Ohio counties.
The coalition’s initial focus will be on three areas:
- lack of internet access, and the negative impact this has on a majority of kids across Southeast Ohio;
- the shortage of child behavioral health specialists;
- the lack of in-patient, acute care facilities.
A full list of the Coalition’s member agencies can be found in the article.
