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!

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is providing a spotlight on children’s mental health. CDC Director Thomas Frieden, M.D., M.P.H., will release the supplemental MMWR titled “Children’s mental health: Surveillance of mental disorders among children in the United States” at the Georgia Mental Health Forum. This report describes current federal efforts to track children’s mental disorders, the prevalence of these disorders, identify gaps, and inform a public health approach to prevent mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders, and promote mental health in children.

The 2013 Rosalynn Carter Georgia Mental Health Forum will provide an opportunity for consumers, families, providers, and other stakeholders to be updated on the settlement agreement between the U.S. Department of
Justice and the State of Georgia and consider how to improve public policy for Georgia’s children and adolescents with behavioral health challenges.
