Back in 2013, the Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health (ADAMH) Board of Franklin County started investing in partnerships with neighborhoods countywide for public murals to engage and educate the public about overall health and wellness, including mental health.
Each mural is a reflection of its location and the unique thoughts residents associate with wellness. ADAMH continues to seek out opportunities to collaborate with both urban and suburban areas about what these things mean to them.
We are currently working on murals in Gahanna and Reynoldsburg!

Reynoldsburg Mural on Livingston
In partnership with Reynoldsburg City Schools, City of Reynoldsburg Parks and Recreation Department and ALTernative, the ADAMH Board of Franklin County is excited to announce the next phase of the Reynoldsburg Mural Project. We started collecting feedback from the community in 2017 and have now found the perfect location for the mural at the Reynoldsburg High School on Livingston Avenue.

Franklinton Mural on Broad
The Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Board of Franklin County (ADAMH), in partnership with ALTernative and Lower Lights Christian Health Center, worked together to provide a community mural for all to enjoy.
The project united local businesses and residents to develop a creative vision for the oldest neighborhood in Columbus, Franklinton. Collaborative mural artwork helps strengthen community connections and allows for personal healing through artistic expression.
In the mural design, visitors will notice one of the common water birds in Ohio, perching in river, taking flight and soaring into the sky over a map of Franklinton. These images represent the rebirth of the Franklinton Community. The mural also carries a message that speaks to indiviuals’ triumphal journeys to an overall healthy life.
Initiatives, like Franklinton Soars,offer the community opportunities to have open discussions about their struggles, which supports a message of hope and importance of overall health and wellness.
Thank you to our partners, our volunteers and our staff!
