The Zepf Center is a local non-profit that provides behavioral health and vocational services to youth and adults with severe and persistent mental illness in Lucas County. Services include child & adolescent psychiatric, medical, residential, and therapy services, as well as career development. The center and foundation are named for Toledoan Elizabeth A. Zepf, a staunch advocate for citizens with mental illness.
The Zepf Center's mission is creating hope, wellness, recovery and career development through integrated services and community partnerships.
Integrated care is the coordination of general and behavioral health care needs in an effort to treat not just the body but the mind.
