As we find ourselves just days away from the Nov. 3 election, we are reminded that the important addiction and mental health programs provided by the ADAMH network are only possible through the support of Franklin County voters.

ADAMH remains grateful for the strong support Franklin County residents have shown in the past and confident that voters will again support an investment in the ADAMH network of care.

For over four decades Franklin County voters have entrusted ADAMH with their tax dollars in order to help the most vulnerable in our community. With this responsibility comes our commitment to become a more nimble organization that is responsive to the community’s needs – both unmet and emerging.

ADAMH has launched a community assessment to ensure we are identifying service gaps and addressing needs, particularly those of underserved populations.

ADAMH invites all members of the Franklin County community to participate in this assessment - including service providers, individuals who have received care and their family members, community leaders and the general public. Measurement Resources Company, a third party, will collect information through a combination of online surveys and focus groups. 

I encourage you to promote and participate in this assessment. Please visit Provider and community surveys are located on the site. The deadline to submit a survey is Nov. 30.

Thank you in advance for your participation and helping to inform our work going forward. With your feedback, ADAMH and its network of providers will lead the way to mental well-being and addiction recovery for all.

Please follow us at @ADAMHFranklin on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on current events related to ADAMH and our System of Care. Please remember to vote on November 3rd.
