NAMI Northside survey

We have designed a confidential survey to learn more about you and your loved one’s needs and set priorities for the future.  PLEASE take the time to complete this survey to help us improve services in the North Atlanta area.
The basic survey should take less than 15 minutes.  Several opportunities to add your comments are also included.  At the end we request your name and contact information.  This information is optional but will help us follow up if you have expressed interest in some of the question areas.  Names will remain confidential and overall findings will be summarized.
Thank you for helping us help the mental health community!
