Basketball Players Listening to Coach



We understand the youth in our care face many daunting challenges including abuse, neglect, separation and displacement issues.  To help alleviate the trauma associated with their experiences and to aid in successful treatment, our residents have a place they can call home – a non-institutional setting with personal touches throughout.  Whether eating together around the dining room table or taking the time to recognize the accomplishments of our youth, our priority is to provide stability and the boundaries of a loving home.


We believe that our residents not only deserve thoughtful concern and caring support, but also require the best in therapeutic care. Our home offers a high quality therapeutic program within its environment. Pairing our commitment to professional and skilled care with the sincere compassion vital to the overall growth of our youth has proven to be an effective and valuable combination.


 A primary objective of MHYD is to educate and empower youth for independence integrating them into conventional living arrangements. We work to accomplish this through a comprehensive approach, including

  • Educational planning assistance

  • Independent living skills development

  • Behavior management and modification

  • Health and medication service provision

  • Recreational programming

This treatment approach along with one-on-one support and the opportunity to develop advanced independent living skills, provides residents with the proper tools needed to achieve independence confidently taking their place in mainstream society.


 We encourage formal and informal community partnerships that will positively influence our youth while promoting a sense of belonging and responsibility. MHYD is fortunate to have ongoing partnerships with community volunteers and professionals, including a member of the Cincinnati Police Department, who consistently provide words of encouragement, support and instruction to our residents. Our home is especially appreciative or our relationship with agencies in our community that serve our residents and help make it possible for us to reach out and change the lives our youth in need.

MHYD serves youth, adults, and families with varying degrees of mental health, substance use and behavioral concerns.  We also provide services to youth and adults who have intellectual or developmental disabilities.  Once connected with MHYD a diagnostic assessment is provided which identifies treatment needs which vary between case management and intervention, training, individual and group therapies, family therapy, after care services, as well as crisis management. Once youth have left our residential setting, outpatient services are offered to youth and families to ensure continuity of care. We strive to provide the highest quality of care through professional service delivery to foster sustainable life changes that promotes the emotional health and wellbeing of the people we serve.

We are accepting referrals for residential and outpatient services for those in need of counseling to address mental health and substance use.  We are currently accepting Medicaid and Medicaid Managed Care. Private insurance is not accepted at this time.
