For Immediate Release
March 20, 2020
DAYTON, Ohio – Montgomery County Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) will place a Mental Health Kiosk in the lobby of the Montgomery County Administration Building located at 451 W. Third Street, Dayton, OH 45422, on Monday, March 23, 2020. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect many Ohioans both physically and mentally, the need for this kiosk in the community has increased.
Helen Jones-Kelley, Executive Director of ADAMHS said, “Our community needs to be able to identify their mental health needs during this pandemic and it is important to remember that everyone reacts differently to stressful situations. Being able to identify your needs is critical when circumstances arise that leave people feeling scared and uncertain.”
The Mental Health Kiosk program walks individuals through several questions that help identify behavioral health concerns.
“We are committed to helping our residents through this extremely stressful time,” said Montgomery County Commission President Judy Dodge. “The importance of this work cannot be overstated, and we thank our friends at ADAMHS for providing this tool for citizens to get the help they need.”
The kiosk will remain at the Montgomery County Administration Building until further notice and will be sanitized per the County’s enhanced disinfection protocols. Citizens are also advised to seek help by downloading the GetHelpNow App, which is available on Google Play and the Apple Store.
