Mental Health Services
The Mental Health department provides outpatient counseling and psychiatry services to patients.

More severe conditions are addressed on a case-by-case basis, and referrals are offered as needed.

An initial intake appointment is required for all services. Our program serves adults and older adolescents ages 18 and older.

Project DAWN (Deaths Avoided With Naloxone)
Project DAWN is a community-based overdose prevention and education project. This collaboration with MetroHealth enables opioid users to visit Circle Health Services on a walk-in basis to pick up naloxone kits and receive instruction on how to recognize and respond to an overdose and how to administer intranasal naloxone to reverse an opioid overdose. Opioids include heroin and prescription pain medications, such as hydrocodone (Lorcet and Vicodin), oxycodone (Percocet), long acting opioids (Oxycontin, MS Contin and Methodone), and patches (Fentanyl), among others. No appointment is necessary. Walk-ins are welcome on Tuesdays from noon to 4:00pm and Fridays from 1:00 – 5:00pm. For more information, contact Emily Metz at or (216) 707-3448, or Lisa Michelle Fair at or visit the Ohio Department of Health website.
