In existence since 2001, the Ohio Mental Health Network for School Success (OMHNSS) consists of action networks spearheaded by affiliate organizations in six regions of Ohio. Currently, the Network is funded by the Ohio Department of Mental Health (ODMH).

In 2007, the university based Effective Practice Partners (EPPs) of the Effective Practice Integration Council (EPIC) met with OMHNSS leadership and affiliate organizations to develop an integrated strategic plan. Through this process, the EPPs, Network leadership, and affiliate representatives chose to merge and create an enhanced OMHNSS. OMHNSS is striving to help Ohio's schools, community-based agencies, and families work together to achieve improved educational and developmental outcomes for all children, especially those at emotional or behavioral risk and those with mental health problems. Beginning in 2007-2008 the following new structural organization for the OMHNSS has been adopted.
