ADAMhs Board funds wellness campaign


Staff report



Fulton County Health Department was among four area health departments to be awarded funds from the Four County Alcohol, Drug Addiction, and Mental health services (ADAMhs) Board to implement a mental wellness communication campaign.

This is the second year of funding from the ADAMhs’s Board for a campaign that continues to increase the community’s understanding of mental wellness and offers tips to maintain health.

The goal of the campaign is to encourage the community to “Take Care. Connect. Relax.” The message is a reminder for communty members to take care of themselves both physically and mentally, connect with family and friends, and take time to relax and unwind. Advertisements will feature images of local community members managing their mental wellness.

The four-county mental wellness media campaign began in July 2017. Since its inception, various channels have been utilized to promote mental health messages across the four-county area.

The second year of funding includes a partnership with WTVG Channel 13 in Toledo and Gray Television Group, Inc. for television commercials, social media advertisements, and an online landing page that includes tips for mental wellness. Signs were created and distributed to the four-county parks and schools to promote the mental wellness messages. Billboards, radio, movie theater, and print ads will also continue to promote mental health messages in the community throughout the four-county area.
