the concord history



Concord was formed by a group of volunteers – Westerville residents working with students, faculty and administrators from Otterbein College. They saw the need for an organization that would help students and others in the local community deal with mental health issues.



Led by a committed, volunteer board of directors, Concord is accredited by CARF, a national accreditation organization which surveys rehabilitation facilities to insure they meet national standards of care.


Over the years, Concord Counseling Services has grown from a crisis hotline staffed by volunteers to become a respected community resource serving Franklin and Delaware Counties. Each year our dedicated professional staff helps thousands of men, women and children learn to deal with challenges they face in a healthy, productive way.


Concord has won numerous national, state and local awards and has been featured in national publications for effective, innovative programming.  In 2011 the Concord staff move into their newly purchased building at 700 Brooksedge Blvd, Westerville, Ohio 43081.


Having just completed a $1,700,000 building expansion and renovation to serve more clients, today Concord’s services are supported by the Alcohol Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County, Central Ohio Area Agency on Aging, Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services, Ohio Department of Drug and Alcohol, Ohio Department of Mental Health, The Columbus Foundation, City of Westerville, Westerville City Schools, New Albany Schools, Groveport Madison Schools, generous individuals, and local businesses.
