Concord Counseling Services Celebrates 40th Birthday…People Helping People Since 1972

Concord Counseling Services  Founded by a group of concerned citizens from Westerville, Concord Counseling Services is a private, nonprofit organization proud to continue the tradition of caring that began 40 years ago.  One of central Ohio’s first community mental health agencies, Concord provides comprehensive and specialized mental health and substance abuse counseling and has received the highest level of accreditation from CARF, which accredits rehabilitation facilities. 

For the last 4 years I have served on the Board of Directors along with Jim McCann, the former Principal of Westerville North High School.  Being a nonprofit and also experiencing budget cuts from the state, Concord is not able to serve all client requests…the waiting list gets longer and longer.  And as we watch and/or read the news, we hear more stories about 1 month to 99 years old people with different issues and obstacles.  It seems to be the young and elderly who are the most vulnerable.  1 in 4 need help in our community. 

As Concord is celebrating 40 years, changes have taken place…we now have purchased a building, 700 Brooksedge Blvd. Westerville, Ohio 43081-2820, where we will be holding a Birthday Party on August 25, 2011.  Check out our website for more information on how you can become a friend of Concord…and please attend our Birthday Party…bring some friends and learn more about Concord!
