The ADAMH Board created the new Youth Resiliency & Counseling Center (YRCC) to provide trauma informed care and behavioral health services for youth and families as they work to heal from the mental health, substance use and traumatic experiences that so many are facing.  


The ADAMH Board has chosen OhioGuidestone, a well-known community based behavioral healthcare provider and a partner of the ADAMH Board since 2017, to provide services at the Youth Resiliency & Counseling Center.


The ADAMH Board is very pleased to announce the grand opening of the YRCC on May 12, 2023 and looks forward to partnering with OhioGuidestone to serve countless youth and family members throughout Medina County.  As part of celebration, we are asking Medina County’s Youth to help us decorate the YRCC with their own artwork depicting resiliency.


Students who are in grades 5 through 12 are invited to submit 18” by 24” artwork in any medium that can be framed and displayed at the YRCC. The deadline to submit artwork is Wednesday, October 4th.   In addition, we plan to share up to 40 pieces of the submitted student artwork at a special art show for the community during the week of October 23rd.


Understanding Resiliency


Thank you for helping us decorate our Youth Resiliency & Counseling Center!  We are excited to display your Images of Resiliency with the community. 


We know that Resilience is something we see in children each and every day.  At OhioGuidestone, we are looking for what your students believe Resilience looks like to them.  Resilience is the ability to cope when things go wrong.  Bouncing back after difficult times. Dealing with challenges and still holding your head up. Giving things a go or trying your best. Being strong on the inside.  How have they overcome hard times?  Who helps and supports them in making positive decisions for their future?  What helps them keep trying even when things are challenging?


In order to help in explaining the concept of Resiliency to your students, please feel free to utilize the videos below in whatever fashion you see fit.
