Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention

Lead is a toxic metal that poisons the brain and body. There is no safe blood lead level​, so even very small amounts are dangerous. Lead exposure damages a child’s developing brain, kidneys, and nervous system. It can cause learning disabilities, behavior problems, seizures, and in extreme cases, death.

Read about how to prevent childhood lead poisoning in our fact sheet. Available in English, Spanish, and Hmong​. 


​Social Connectedness of Youth

Social Connectedness of Youth​ is our strategic focus. Positive and strong social connections make for resilient youth that are able to better navigate mental health challenges. It's the one thing!

Trauma-Informed Care Video Training

Plan for staff (or individual) training with OCMH's trauma-informed care training videos. Two topics are available:

  • Exploring Race and Culture from a Trauma-Informed Lens (3 segments – White Privilege, Implicit Bias, and Working with People with Different Racial and Cultural Backgrounds)
  • COVID-19 and Trauma-Informed Care – Collective Trauma 101


View the expert panel discussions in these 30-minute videos in staff meetings or with colleagues (or individually). Then discuss the questions in the learning toolkit. All fit into a one-hour staff meeting time.

Access the videos and learning toolkits​.
