On March 18 ADAMHS announced it would launch the Miami Valley Warmline, in partnership with Goodwill Easterseals Miami Valley. The warmline will provide mental and behavioral health support services, including emotional support and behavioral health and recovery resource information.

This is called a “warmline” because it isn’t meant for emergencies like a hotline is.

The Miami Valley Warmline is open Monday-Friday from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. at 937-528-7777.

ADAMHS also set up a Mental Health Kiosk in the lobby of the Montgomery County Administration Building at 451 West Third Street. The kiosk will walk people through several questions to help identify behavioral health concerns, starting March 23.

Finally, ADAMHS added COVID-19 resources to its GetHelpNow phone app, so people in the community have access to resources like crisis support and healthcare and testing updates.
