Since its inception in 1967, ADAMH has served resident constituents of all ages, races, genders, cultures and faiths by providing funding to agencies with the goal of reducing the incidence of mental health problems and eliminating the abuse of alcohol and other drugs in the county. More than 71% of the ADAMH system’s resources come from a single property tax levy approved by voters. The community strongly supports the ADAMH System of Care and we do not take this community trust lightly. The remainder comes from federal, state and local funding sources.
ADAMH funding is used to purchase behavioral healthcare services for the uninsured and under-insured residents of Franklin County. 24/7 crisis services through ADAMH’s network are available to everyone in the community. Whenever an individual is in crisis, ADAMH’s provider network is available.
