In 2021, leadership of ADMH recognized a need and opportunity to develop a new strategic plan to guide the Department. This strategic plan will:

  • Guide the overall direction of the Department and serve as a touchstone for decision-making for the next three years
  • Identify and build on strengths of the organization while also identifying potential challenges and opportunities
  • Identify and engage diverse stakeholders in a meaningful way

Five strategic priorities and goals, highlighted below, describe the overarching areas of focus for the Department over the next three years. Each priority and goal were thoughtfully developed with the achievement of mission and vision as the ultimate aim.
