Every year, almost 3,000 adults living with serious mental illness, addiction or a chronic health condition receive help through Whole Health Clinical Group. We offer all the services needed – from outpatient clinical services to primary care and supportive case management and housing – to aid in treatment and recovery.
Mike heard voices, saw things that didn't exist, and had a history of setting fires to get attention. In and out of foster homes his whole life, he found his home at Ohio House, a group home run by Whole Health Clinical Group. Staff helped Mike, now in his 20s, manage his medications and finances, and he’s re-established ties with his estranged family. Thanks to his Whole Health caseworker, Mike even landed a job in a department store – a job he still has. “I’m looking forward to one day moving into my own apartment,” Mike said. “Now that I’m stable, I can do anything.”

The CRCs are a 24/7 community based alternative to an emergency room or inpatient hospitalization.
