Week of Appreciation

From September 18th to 24th, the Ohio Association of County Behavioral Health Authorities (OACBHA), the Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services (OHMHAS), and Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health (ADAMH) Boards throughout Ohio will promote a Week of Appreciation for all mental health and addiction workers.  Collectively, we want to thank all individuals working to support recovery throughout our communities. Join us in celebrating their hard work and commitment to bringing help and bringing hope to Ohioans in need.

Bringing Help. Bringing Hope. Thanking Ohio's Mental Health and Addiction Service Workers
