New Podcast: Discussing Substance Use, Mental Health, and Children’s Services

RALI Ohio recently recorded a podcast with guests Representative Susan Manchester, Scott Britton, and Joe Abdalla.


The discussion, moderated by Candace DeMatteis, touched on the complex and interconnected issues of substance misuse and addiction, mental health disorders, and public children services in Ohio, all of which have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.


Listen in to hear insights from Representative Manchester, who sponsored a bill last year aimed at improving Ohio’s system for training and approving potential foster caregivers; Scott Britton, Assistant Director of the Public Children Services Association of Ohio, who manages the Ohio START program; and Joe Abdalla, a former law enforcement officer who now dedicates his time and expertise to help prevent substance misuse and addiction.
