Youth & Adults Mental Health and Wellness Outreach

Youth & Adults Mental Health and Wellness Outreach


During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Ohioans have been asked to follow safety requirements that resulted in significant adjustments. During this time of increased stressors, it’s important to have access to the resources that can help both children and adults to cope, heal, strengthen and grow. This guide provides access to those resources as well as all the tools needed to support an appropriate awareness campaign. Each initiative has a built-in education and stigma-reduction component, aimed at changing attitudes and strengthening supports for those in need. The website links below will take visitors directly to the “plug and play” assets for each campaign. The toolkits include downloadable educational resources, including videos, for parents and educators.

For questions or to request artwork in different sizes (i.e. for other media like billboards or bus signs), contact the campaign’s host organization listed in the corresponding link.

The Ohio CareLine 1-800-720-9616 and Crisis Text Line “4HOPE” TO 741741 are support services that should be included in all outreach strategies
