Residents in the Cincinnati area can receive help through a variety of resources. The Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) resource provides wrap-around care to individuals with severe mental illness with a goal of keeping all residents active in the community as they progress to recovery. The Counseling Treatment Unit provides residents with all modes of counseling, including individual, family, and group. These programs address trauma, coping skills, behavior modification, and other therapeutic areas of concern. Another valuable resource under the umbrella of GCB services is the Recovery Center of Hamilton County (RCHC), which offers residents the opportunity to take their personal growth to the next level. Through courses, counseling, peer support, community activities, and self-help activities, RCHC aims to empower and improve the lives of residents with mental illness throughout the county.
