Opportunities To Let Us Know: “How Are We Doing?”

One way to measure how well we’re doing is by asking you! Only you can “speak up” and tell us what is, or is not, working. This is done in several ways.

  • Customer satisfaction surveys are conducted once a year. They are at every location where CMH services are provided. Surveys may also be mailed out or you can call and ask that one be mailed to you.
  • Comment cards are available in the lobby for you to complete.
  • Staff who work for Community Mental Health attend health and career fairs and other events in the community. This offers opportunities for people to ask questions and pick up brochures.
  • Community groups can request information or presentations. We offer a range of topics in education, training, and prevention.
