In 1999, the Ohio Department of Mental Health, with the collaboration of
consumers, family members, clinicians and mental health board staff developed
the Emerging Best Practices in Mental Health Recovery process. These pages
provide an overview of the process, the guiding principles that drive the
process, a summary of how to use the Best Practices and the Best Practices
components. To obtain additional information about the Best Practices or to receive extensive training on the Emerging
Best Practices for your organization or Board area, please contact the Office of
