Help Us Assess Our Collaboration at the February 26 BHA Meeting

Please join the Behavioral Health Alliance on Tues., February 26, 2019, for a very special meeting.  We will meet at 3 p.m. in the JJC Morris Education Center, 725 School St., Morris, to share feedback about our collaboration.

One of the directives of Grundy County’s 2017 Missing Pieces Needs Assessment was to improve collaboration around behavioral health in Grundy County.  Our February meeting will focus on conducting a Kaizen Assessment facilitated by Samantha Castro of the Illinois Army National Guard Counterdrug Task Force.

Kaizen is a Japanese philosophy based on continuous improvement.  The Kaizen Assessment is a survey designed to measure a collaboration’s ability to implement essential processes used in common public health models.

Because this is an assessment session, there will not be a CEU available for this meeting, but please come anyway to add your voice to this important assessment.  Please see the  Feb 26 BHA Meeting Flyer  for more information.

The presentation on Crisis Response which was scheduled for January but canceled due to dangerous weather, has been re-scheduled to March 26, 2019, at 3 p.m.  Please mark your calendars for that important update.

This meeting will be held at 3 p.m. at Joliet Junior College’s Morris Education Center, 725 School Street (Door 27), Morris.

Newly Revised Grundy County Community Resource Directory

With the help of BHA members and local providers, a revised and enlarged Grundy Resource Directory  has been developed for Grundy County.  The directory is organized by topic section (e.g. education, substance use disorder, etc.) and is indexed.

The Directory is a project under Chestnut Health Systems’ Substance Abuse Prevention Services grant under Illinois Department of Human Services Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery.

Because directories become outdated quickly, the process of revisions and corrections is taking place immediately.  To report or suggest changes, please email the new or corrected information to [email protected]
