Ohio Counties Pass Levy to Support PAX Good Behavior Game

The citizens of Allen, Auglaze and Hardin counties in Ohio pass a levy to support mental health prevention, intervention and treatment. The 1 mill, five-year levy for Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Allen, Auglaize and Hardin counties passed 55 percent to 45 percent overall and passed in all three counties. The vote was 13,070 to 10,489, according to unofficial results from county election boards.

In years past, the levy failed. One of the likely reasons the levy passed is because of the mobilization of teachers, parents and others who have witnessed first-hand the benefit of PAX GBG in in the schools. The benefits have been profound enough that teachers and others mobilized to support the levy, since one of the purposes is to expand the benefits of PAX GBG to every school in the three counties over time, http://limaohio.com/news/news/456305/Mental-health-board-seeking-new-levy.

This is appears to be the first time counties have passed a levy to fund an evidence-based practice to be used universally to prevent mental emotional and behavioral disorders.
