MAY 2020 BHA NEWSLETTER

As members of the Behavioral Health Alliance of Grundy County, we are dedicated to educating, collaborating and advocating around behavioral health.  We are doing this even as we socially distance ourselves and take precautions around COVID-19.

You can download our BHA May Newsletter to keep up with what is going on.  We will offer another Zoom meeting at our usual 3 p.m. meeting time on May 26th.  Stay tuned for more information about this.  If you would like to share anything in an upcoming meeting or newsletter, please email it to [email protected] or [email protected]

We hope you are staying safe and staying well!

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Because directories become outdated quickly, the process of revisions and corrections is taking place immediately.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]
