Jones Loflin to Speak at ADAMH Premier Fundraiser

The Fairfield Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services Board is Growing a Healthier Community!

This is the theme of the upcoming annual dinner and premier of its first fundraiser to be held Tuesday, May 21 at the Wigwam Event Center in Pickerington.

The evening will feature a nationally known author, speaker, and coach – Jones Loflin. Loflin has made it his life’s work to deliver powerful ideas and practical solutions to individuals around the world so they can achieve more of what is most important to them. His books include Juggling Elephants and Always Growing which provided the inspiration for the ADAMH event this year.

The event pairs well with Mental Health Month held in May each year and will also honor three individuals/businesses with the ADAMH Star award. Nominations for this special award were submitted earlier this month.

The Fairfield County ADAMH Board brings local partners together to address mental health and addiction. The board plans, funds and manages programs through local non-profit organizations to deliver much-needed services. Most recently, the Board held an open house for a new crisis stabilization center in Lancaster. Services here will address the immediate needs of individuals in crisis due to substance use or mental health issues.

“The Fairfield County ADAMH Board touches so many lives through funding programs and free trainings of which many aren’t aware,” Jackie Howard, ADAMH Public Relations Coordinator said. “The ADAMH Board works with schools, first responders, healthcare providers, and the court system to name a few,” she added.

Currently the Fairfield County ADAMH Board funds programs all or in part to the following Fairfield County Agencies; Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeastern Ohio, Fairfield Center of Hope, Fairfield County 2-1-1, Fairfield County Family and Children First Council, Lancaster-Fairfield Community Action Agency, Lancaster Recovery Services, The Lighthouse, Lutheran Social Services Faith Mission of Fairfield County, Meals on Wheels of Fairfield County, Mental Health America of Ohio, Mid-Ohio Psychological Services, Inc., New Horizons Mental Health Services, Ohio Guidestone and the Recovery Center.
