Appalachian Children Coalition launched to help Southeast Ohio young people

Pike County News Watchman |

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.
