Vote YES Mental Health RENEWAL, not an increase "Continue the Caring"
The Mental Health and Recovery Board of Ashland County is an organized network of local professional services and agencies. The network helped 2,570 individuals and their families in our community last year through treatment and prevention services. This includes: mental health and/or alcohol treatment, a crisis 24/7 hotline, school liaison program and addiction recovery services.
Your YES vote FOR the Ashland County Mental Health and Recovery RENEWAL levy on November 3, 2015 will continue the availability of these services.
We are asking Ashland County voters to approve a 5-year,1-mill, RENEWAL levy. It currently costs the owner of a $100,000 home about 8 cents per day. It is a RENEWAL levy and there will be NO increase in taxes. These levy dollars are needed to meet the ever growing mental health and substance abuse needs of children and families in Ashland County. It generates approximately 30% of the revenue for the Board.
Mental illness, family problems and substance abuse can affect young and old alike from all walks of life. Anyone at some point in their life could need these vital services. It could be your son or daughter, your brother or sister, your parent or grandparent, your friend or even you. All of these services are private and confidential.
