New mobile kiosks screen for mental health

Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Montgomery County organization has installed mobile kiosks to help people improve their mental health.

Montgomery County Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) says taking care of your mental health should be as commonplace as screening for physical illness.

The kiosks are located in the Job Center and Main Library in Dayton.

They screen for treatable mental health issues, then provide educational information and a connection for local behavioral health resources.

“We encourage that the community takes part in the assessments, it helps with early identification and mental health challenges, as well as getting you into treatment earlier. Earlier identification and earlier treatment improves health outcomes,” says Paula Cosby, Director of External Affairs with ADAMHS.

One in five Americans will experience a mental health issue in their lifetime.
