Our Community Plan
ADAMH is mandated to plan, fund and evaluate the behavioral health care services in our community. To fulfill this mandate, the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services requires that ADAMH prepare a Community Plan every two years. This serves as a means for funding advocacy by defining: local need; what gaps exist in meeting that need; and how additional funds would be used to close those gaps.
Additionally, the Community Plan serves as means for developing a learning community for the Boards and for gathering local data to successfully obtain Block Grant Funds from SAMHSA and other Behavioral Health funding streams. The Community Plan describes the economic, social, and demographic factors in our community that will influence service delivery as well as details challenges and opportunities impacting consumers, providers and the community.
