Community Mental Health & Health Center Continue Services During COVID-19 Outbreak

Community Mental Healthcare and Community Family Health Center plan to continue all services during the COVID-19 outbreak.

All services including individual and group counseling, addiction treatment, case management, and primary care services will continue to be provided during regular business hours. Crisis Intervention remains available 24 hours a day. At this time, only essential and emergency dental services are being provided. Anyone currently scheduled for dental services will be contacted by health center staff to provide updates.

“Safety is our priority for both our staff and the individuals we serve,” said JJ Boroski, Executive Director of Community Mental Healthcare. “Our agency’s Leadership Team is in constant communication with local, state, and federal agencies in order to adapt our processes to provide the safest healthcare environment possible.”

Boroski said the agency will communicate any service delivery changes or service options on the agency’s Facebook page. Individuals currently utilizing services will be contacted personally if any changes to their current treatment occur. If you have questions about appointments, services, or any other needs you may have, call CMH at 330.343.6631.

“It’s very difficult to know what future measures will be required to curtail the spread of COVID-19,” Boroski said. “We know everyone is being affected by cancellations, closings, and shortages. We plan to follow the recommendations of our healthcare leadership, but right now, the community needs our services. We’re going to do everything in our power to continue to deliver those services.”

CMH and the health center accept Medicaid, Medicare, and private insurance. A sliding- fee scale (self-pay) is available for those who may not be covered others. All ages are welcome.
