The meeting is held at the Geauga County Board of Mental Health and Recovery Services Building , 13244 Ravenna Road , Chardon , OH 44024 .

Screening Committee
The Screening Committee is the entry point for all Council-funded programs for kids 6 and over, including BRIDGES (a partial hospitalization program) and the Therapeutic Youth Center . Cases are presented to a Team to ensure that the children presented receive services appropriate to their needs.
