Lindner Center of HOPE to Celebrate Milestone Fifth Anniversary

LCOH Evenings with the ExpertsCenter, with support from the City of Mason, to provide free monthly educational talks to community as a gesture of appreciation.

Mason, OH – Five years ago this August, a center designed to focus on the mental health needs of Greater Cincinnati and beyond opened its doors. Lindner Center of HOPE was created to offer quality, comprehensive mental health services — meaning it could address varying levels of severity of illness and an extensive list of diagnoses including complex mental illness, while being able to serve individuals of all ages. Lindner Center of HOPE hired expert clinical staff, some of whom are regionally, nationally and even internationally known for their specialization in complex mental illnesses, including bipolar disorder, depression, eating disorders, anxiety, OCD and co-occurring disorders.

Since Lindner Center of HOPE opened in 2008, it has made a positive impact on mental healthcare in Greater Cincinnati and across the country. A joint venture partnership between The Lindner Family Foundation and UC Health, the Center has served over 20,000 patients from 43 different states, plus places like Guam, Abu Dhabi, Bahamas, Ontario and British Columbia. Over 4,000 people have been taken care of on the inpatient units, more than 10,000 people have made more than 138,000 outpatient visits and over 500 people have received diagnostic and short-term residential services on the Sibcy House unit. More than 604 people have received neuromodulation services including Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) or Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT). The Research Institute at Lindner Center of HOPE has received more than 30 grants totaling over $2.5 million, while publishing more than 55 original articles appearing in over 31 peer-reviewed journals. These accomplishments highlight the tremendous contributions of this facility in just five years. The Center and its clinicians have received numerous accolades and reports clinically significant improvement for patients in outcomes data.

In celebration of this milestone anniversary year, Lindner Center of HOPE has partnered with the City of Mason to offer a free special educational speakers series to members of the public. The series, “Evening with the Experts:  Expert discussion of mental health, addictions and mental wellness with Lindner Center of HOPE clinicians” will take place the second Wednesday of each month from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Mason Community Center’s Senior Center  beginning August 14, 2013. Details about the schedule can be found in the attached flyer and on our website at lindnercenterofhope.org/experts.

Lindner Center of HOPE’s mission includes education about mental health issues, while the City of Mason’s mission includes facilitating wellness.
