Ohio Healthy Transitions Project

The Ohio Healthy Transitions Project (OHTP) is a SAMHSA funded initiative to improve access to treatment and support services for youth and young adults ages 16-25 with a serious emotional disturbance (SED) or a serious mental illness (SMI). Through a five-year grant awarded to the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, OHTP is partnering with Wingspan Care Group, the nonprofit parent company of Bellefaire JCB, Applewood Centers Inc. and Lifeworks, to develop a culturally competent service continuum to bridge the gap between the youth and adult systems in Cuyahoga and Lorain counties.
