One of the immediate missions of the Healthy Kids Learning Community initiative has been to create an accessible, continuing resource for clinicians and caregivers dealing with the surmounting crises and dimensions that has occurred during the Ohio opiate epidemic over the past half decade.
In keeping with this mission, the Center for Innovative Practices, in collaboration with WraparoundOhio.org and the Healthy Kids Learning Community initiative, partnered with some of Ohio’s foremost experts in their respective fields to lend their perspectives via their areas of expertise in a community share for the Buckeye State’s youth, families, clinicians, and various stakeholders dealing with the challenges and recovery of those youth and families.
Below is the five-session series, exploring the various facets of the crisis, notably including various ways to help service provider staff avoid burnout and turnover.
