Emotional Support Animal Letter
Emotional Support Animals provide comfort to their owners, helping them cope with symptoms associated with mental health diagnosis or emotional disturbances. ESA's are pivotal for someone with a mental health diagnosis such as anxiety, depression PTSD Etc.
In the state of Ohio, an emotional support animal (ESA) letter is a document written by a mental health professional that attests to the fact that an individual has a disability and that their disability is improved by the presence of their emotional support animal. In order to qualify for an ESA letter in Ohio, an individual must have a diagnosed mental or emotional disability that is recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5).
In Ohio, emotional support animals are not subject to the same public access laws as service animals, which are defined as dogs or miniature horses that are trained to perform specific tasks for individuals with disabilities. However, emotional support animals may be permitted in housing and on airplanes under the Fair Housing Act and the Air Carrier Access Act, respectively, as long as the individual has a valid ESA letter from a mental health professional.
It is important to note that ESA letters are not valid unless they are written by a mental health professional who is licensed to practice in Ohio. It is also important to be aware that there are many online companies that claim to provide legitimate ESA letters, but these companies are not recognized by the state of Ohio and the letters they provide may not be valid. If you are seeking an ESA letter in Ohio, it is recommended that you consult with a licensed mental health professional.
