The Child and Family Health Collaborative of Ohio, a subsidiary of the Ohio Children's Alliance, and CareSource have partnered to develop a program offering therapeutic relief for families with the goal of preventing the need for acute behavioral health interventions. Within six months of receiving respite care, the program has decreased acute services usage by 88%.
