National Council Needs Your Input; Survey on the Impact of COVID-19

We need your help on a critical, tight-turnaround project! As we continue to advocate at a federal level for relief funding in the fourth COVID-19 package, we want to be sure we make the right “ask” to ensure it includes what community behavioral health organizations really need.

To get it right, we are conducting a pulse-check survey of our members** to help us better understand the impact of COVID-19. This quick and simple survey is just 5 questions and is conducted via Survey Monkey. The survey needs to be completed by April 10 (this Friday).

That’s not much time, but other organizations are already scrambling to get their asks for the package together quickly and we can’t afford to fall behind. We need to be able to tell our story so legislators see that we are struggling now and that need won’t end after the pandemic subsides as we grapple with the aftermath of fear, anxiety, depression, addictions, and even PTSD.

We know this is one of the most demanding periods we have ever faced and your time is precious. We also know that some of these questions may be similar to those you responded to in another recent survey, but we need this information to guide us in our messaging. The need is great and we need your help so we can help you and the people you serve.

Here is a link to the short survey. Please don’t put it aside; complete it as quickly as possible so we can begin to compile the results. We must have all responses to the survey by Friday, April 10!

If you have any questions or if we can be of any assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact Reyna Taylor. Thank you for your understanding of the urgency of this request and your help. Our future is quite literally at stake.

**IDD Providers: Please note that ANCOR is also conducting a survey that is due to be released later today. Please consider participating in their survey with regard to any of your programs currently serving individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities.
