ADAMHS Board shares memories of its former Chief Executive Officer William M. Denihan

(Plain Press, June 2022)          It is with great sadness that the Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) Board of Cuyahoga County shares that its former Chief Executive Officer, William M. Denihan, passed away on Monday, May 23

   ADAMHS Board Chair, Reverend Benjamin F. Gohlstin shared, “With a heavy but prayerful heart we are mourning the transition of one of the most dynamic public servants of Northeast Ohio. William Denihan, retired CEO of the ADAMHS Board of Cuyahoga County and former executive director of Children and Family Services among many public service endeavors, has made a peaceful transition from labor to reward. Our continuous prayers, condolences and blessings are extended to Mary and the Denihan Family.”

   “I was honored to work closely with Mr. Denihan for more than 15 years. He was my mentor and friend,” said Scott S. Osiecki, Chief Executive Officer of the ADAMHS Board of Cuyahoga County. “We will miss him, and our thoughts are with his wife, Mary, and his family as they mourn his loss and celebrate his well-lived life of service.” 

   William M. Denihan served as the Chief Executive Office of the ADAMHS Board of Cuyahoga County for more than 15 years and as a public servant for more than 40 years. During his time with the Board, he ensured that components such as creative arts and spirituality were in place to help people along their healing journeys to recovery. He fought for parity in treatment for behavioral health and Medicaid expansion and took the first steps toward ensuring evidence-based treatment and naloxone were available in our community to address the opioid epidemic.
