Just a Bit of Syntero 2017

We have broadened our agency footprint to three new geographical areas of Central Ohio- Delaware and Morrow Counties and Northeast Columbus. In 2017 our Intake Department served 11,027 unique calls of those seeking services at Syntero.

Our School-Based Teams continue to serve more and more Franklin County students, and recently began partnerships with eight new school districts in Delaware and Morrow Counties. As part of these services, 3,169 students received Signs of Suicide classroom education focusing on youth mental health and suicide prevention. Syntero’ s Upper Arlington School-Based Team received the 2017 City of Upper Arlington Community Safety Award for work in the Upper Arlington Schools.

In 2017, our Youth Mentoring Program provided services on behalf of 130 individuals.

Numerous new partnerships in 2017, including SourcePoint, the Dublin Arts Council, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, OhioHealth, Delaware-Morrow County Mental Health and Recovery Board and the Delaware County United Way have been the beginning of better serving needs for thousands of our neighbors.
