MI/ID CCOE Team Awards
The following counties were selected to receive CCOE Team Awards in 2016 due to the incredible amount of work accomplished by their counties over the past year. The advocacy efforts in accessing mental health treatment and in coordinating care for individuals with IDD with the most complex needs is amazing. We are inspired by these teams and they are, without question, a model for others. These counties are to be congratulated by the Ohio Dept. of DD, the Ohio Dept. of MHAS, and the Ohio DD Council:
