MORRIS HOSPITAL RELEASES 2019 COMMUNITY HEALTH NEEDS ASSESSMENT

Every three years, Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers completes a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and uses the data it collects to better understand the health challenges of residents in the communities it serves.

The 2019 CHNA continues to show important needs and gaps in the areas of mental health and substance use disorders.  The data provided by this report will be explored further in the months ahead by the Behavioral Health Alliance.  For more information about the CHNA, and to download the reports, please visit the Morris Hospital website.

Grundy County Community Resource Directory

With the help of BHA members and local providers, a revised and enlarged Grundy County 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Because directories become outdated quickly, the process of revisions and corrections is taking place immediately.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]
