Zepf at Harrison Rally Day

Published Monday, October 12, 2015

It was a perfect early fall day, with plenty of sunshine and lots of wind, for Zepf to promote our services for Lucas and Wood County at Perryburg Chamber of Commerce’s annual Harrison Rally Day! Zepf was one of over 100 vendors (and the only mental health center!), to be in the community that day to talk to festival-goers about our array of services.

As a platinum sponsor, Zepf was given a spot front and center at the festival and will be featured in Perrysburg CoC newsletters and websites for the next year. While handing out fliers for mental health assessments, brochures about addiction and gambling programming, and having our younger community members fill out bullying pledges, we learned the stories of so many people whose lives have been affected by mental health problems and addiction. With an estimated 50,000 participants at the festival, Zepf and its services are sure to have an extended reach in Wood and neighboring counties and hopefully touch the lives of a few more people looking for hope and recovery!



Integrated care is the coordination of general and behavioral health care needs in an effort to treat not just the body but the mind.
