Earlier this year, OhioMHAS convened a 340 Review Stakeholder Workgroup to review Ohio Revised Code Chapter 340 which regards Ohio ADAMH Boards. The Workgroup has been reviewing and identifying code sections, defining specific challenges, and exploring recommended solutions.
As a new phase of the 340 review process, OhioMHAS is now convening in-person and virtual listening sessions to allow for local input and perspective on issues the 340 Workgroup has been considering.
Anyone interested in participating in-person or virtual, must RSVP to 340ReviewWorkgroup@mha.ohio.gov no later than one week in advance of the meeting date. RSVPs should include full name, organization (if applicable), and county of residence. Please also indicate if any special accommodation is needed. The meetings are open to the public, and a public comment period will be a part of each of these sessions. The dates and times of these meetings are below:
