Columbus is one of the most beautiful cities in Ohio. With over 60 community gardens, an arboretum, and lots of parks, there are plenty of ways to enjoy life in the outdoors.1 Hiking and biking clubs are a great way to join the community and experience the joy of physical activity. If you would like something less strenuous, you can connect with one of the gardening groups, or play a game of golf at one of the three world-class golf courses. Also, besides a few thunderstorms, the weather is good throughout the year, giving you even less reason to stay inside. If you're looking for a great place to stay in shape and enjoy the open air, look no further than Columbus, Ohio.

There is a vital need for mental health care in Columbus. Each year, as many as 50,000 individuals are admitted to psychiatric treatment programs. Homicide and suicide rates are higher in Franklin County than the state of Ohio as a whole.

Mental Health America of Franklin County provides pro bono counseling services to Columbus residents who require mental health care and are unable to afford it. A network of qualified, licensed, and insured mental health professionals offer services to assist people with depression, other common mental illnesses, trouble at home, difficulty with children, and a host of other common problems.

Current Initiatives

In order to address the severe shortage of beds for Columbus citizens in need of intensive psychiatric care, public and private institutions throughout Franklin County have joined forces to form the Franklin County Mental Health Initiative. The primary goal of the initiative is to coordinate information between the area's three adult hospital systems, crisis intervention facility, state psychiatric hospital, and other organizations to ensure access to quality care for everyone. Daily briefings keep officials at all member facilities informed of the number of people waiting for a bed in an inpatient treatment program. Individuals are placed based on their wait time and are placed in the next available bed regardless of the facility at which the patient is being treated. For additional information about the initiative, please call 614-358-2710.4

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Columbus, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Columbus may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Columbus public health department.
