Healthy Living for ME opened the response period for its 2021 Community Health Needs Assessment and is encouraging Mainers to participate.

Survey results will allow the program, Maine’s Community Integrated Health Network, to obtain information needed to best serve and support all adult state citizens. The survey is being conducted in collaboration with the University of New England’s Master of Public Health Program and partners on the Community Health Needs Assessment.

To fill out the survey, Mainers can go to forms.office.com/r/RgLWj5nThn. A link to the survey can also be found on Healthy Living for Maine’s Facebook page at facebook.com/HLforME, or at spectrumgenerations.org.

If someone would like to respond to the survey, but would prefer to do it by phone, they can call 1-800-620-6036.

The survey generally takes under 10 minutes to complete. It will be available online through July 14.

“As Healthy Living for Maine expands programming and services, it is important that we have input from Mainers about where they see a need in the community. We’re asking for your input so we can most effectively plan and implement our programming to fill those health and wellness needs across the state. After you fill out the survey, please share the link with family and friends. Together, we can create a healthier Maine.” said Contract and Business Manager Maija Dyke of Healthy Living for ME.

Data collected through the Community Health Needs Assessment will provide Healthy Living for ME with insight on the type of support adults in Maine need, preferences they have related to that support, as well as access to that support. All adult Mainers are invited answer the survey.
Healthy Living for ME is the Community Integrated Health Network supporting all five of Maine’s Area Agencies on Aging and other Community Providers for the delivery of an array of programs.
