DeWitt County Mental Health Board Engaging Community Through Needs Assessment

A DeWitt County entity is asking for you to offer your thoughts on the County's response to mental wellness, substance abuse, and much more.


On the WHOW Morning Show Wednesday, Sharon Mills with the 708 Mental Health Board told Regional Radio the Community Needs and Resources Assessment can be taken now and it is a process that has been months and months in the making.



According to Mills, they are asking residents to tap into their own experiences and use the survey to help the Mental Health Board to improve the services and response in the County.



Upon the completion of the survey, Mills indicates they will use the data to help guide decisions on how to best direct funding, and guide them in strategic planning but also she hopes they will continue to focus on the areas of improvement the community identifies.



There are several ways to find the assessment to participate. Mills points anyone interested to visit their website, dewittmhb.com. You can also get a paper copy at any of DeWitt County's libraries. Additionally, you may see flyers across the community. If you are tech-savvy, you can scan the QR code and it will direct you to the survey. 


Mills reminds, they will likely close the survey the first week of August.
