Lost Public Services Survey
You can help Beaverhead County in just 5 minutes!
The deadline for Mental Health Local Advisory Council’s survey regarding lost public services is fast approaching. We are making advocacy plans now but need to know which loss(es) residents feel has hit us the hardest.
Since the beginning of the year, there have been multiple losses. The four we are addressing are:
1.the OPA office that helped people know what programs were available and how to access them,
2.the Job Service program that helped connect people who need work with open positions and prepare them to apply and interview well,
3. the mental health center which provided individual and family counseling, day treatment for those needing daily socialization and structure, and case management for things like home visits, and help with accessing medications, transportation to appointments, parenting children with difficult emotional issues, remembering appointments, etc. and
4. the addictions/chemical dependency center which not only offered individual and group therapy but court-mandated courses for those with DUI’s and other offenses.
All of this was in Dillon four months ago and is now gone. How has it impacted us?
The brief survey is just four questions. Please take 5 minutes to fill it out based on the effects you have observed either in your own life or in those around you.
The survey is not the only way to provide feedback to us! Past and potential consumers of these services, who may rather tell than write, can participate in a focus group on April 17th from 1-3:00 in the City Hall courtroom at 125 N Idaho Street.
Thank you for all you do for Beaverhead County!
