Community Emotional Resilience Project

Welcome To Cincinnati's

Alt Text

Welcome to Cincinnati’s first free community mental wellness portal, a partnership with the City of Cincinnati and a first in the nation.

Nearly one in every five Americans struggles with some kind of mental illness, and many with more than one. Millions more struggle to support family members and loved ones with mental illness, and often at the cost of their own mental health.

Factor in a global health pandemic and enormous social unrest, and little surprise that we might all be feeling the extra weight of stress and worry.

But help is out there, much of it self-help, and this important new portal will be your guide. Learn more about the resources available from the City of Cincinnati’s Health Department.

“When I tell people that I suffer from PTSD, the first thing they ask is what branch of the military I served in. When I tell them I didn't, you can immediately tell, like they don't believe it's really PTSD”
