Montgomery County Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) has placed two kiosks in the community to help people improve their mental health wellness. The kiosks aid in the early identification of mental health challenges which facilitates improved health outcomes. "A healthy mind is an important factor to having a healthy body. ADAMHS believes that taking care of a person's mental health should be as commonplace as taking blood pressure or any other screening for a physical illness," said Paula Cosby, Director of External Affairs. "The kiosks provide an important community service by promoting mental health awareness. Individuals have access to anonymous mental health screening tools and an immediate personal assessment along with information about where to receive help throughout the community." The kiosks, located in the Job Center and the main library in Dayton, promote mental health awareness by screening for treatable mental health issues, and provide educational information along with connection to local behavioral health resources. Designed by Screenings for Mental Health in Boston, MA the kiosks offer access to nine screening tools for conditions like depression, anxiety, substance use disorders. "We are excited to invest in the mental health of our community. Screenings can help people develop awareness and we are here to support them", said Michelle Niedermier, Director of Montgomery County Department of Job and Family Services One in five Americans experience a mental health issue in their lifetime and addiction is often accompanied by a co-occurring mental health issue. "We are pleased to partner with ADAMHS to make available their new mental health screening kiosk at our main library. Because libraries play an increasingly important role in connecting people to resources, this program allows us to join best practices in library service, and go one step further in helping people, " said Rachel Gut, Deputy Executive Director, Dayton Metro Library.
