  •  Accountability – Good stewardship of public dollars is critical to achieving positive returns on all investments and to earning the trust of taxpayers.
  •  Collaboration – OhioMHAS will leverage knowledge and resources by working as partners with all federal, state and local systems to gain the best results for Ohioans in need of services.
  • Communication – Open dialogue and administrative transparency are key components of all relationships as OhioMHAS fulfills its statutory requirements to fund, regulate, monitor and manage the publicly funded system of behavioral health care.
  • Service – OhioMHAS will provide a benefit to all communities by helping the millions of Ohioans who experience problems related to alcohol, drugs, gambling or mental illness to access treatment that will enhance their lives by increasing productivity, also benefiting our state.
