Dear friends and colleagues!
We’re having some trouble getting uptake on responses from recipients of public mental health services and the deadline is June 16th. Responses from the individuals and families we serve are essential to guide the creation of interventions to help promote affirming attitudes in mental health.
Could you help us by disseminating the attached and message below to your listservs, members, and anyone who can assist getting the survey to people we serve? Questions can be directed to email@example.com.
Thanks for all you do and your help on this initiative!

QR CODE FOR THE SERVICE RECIPIENT SURVEY:
We encourage providers to offer the survey on paper if a recipient cannot access the online survey versions (see attached). Following completion of a paper survey, we ask that programs or individuals enter the recipient’s responses to the online platform. To be able to enter data in bulk using the same device, please connect with us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Separate survey links will be provided for this purpose on an as needed basis. This allows OMH to receive the responses most efficiently.
If that’s not possible, you can scan the paper surveys and email to email@example.com or fax to 518-408-2210. Please ensure that no personal health information is on the form.
The survey is expected to close on June 16, 2022
Please see the original survey announcement below.
The Office of Mental Health is seeking broad input about attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors related to mental health. More specifically, the following survey seeks to obtain this input from people who receive services.
Survey responses are anonymous and only aggregate data will be shared. Findings will help depict the current state, of attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors here in New York. Findings will also guide the creation of interventions to help promote affirming attitudes.
The Office of Mental Health recognizes that some individuals receiving services may have trouble accessing the survey, so we’re asking service providers, advocates, and other supporters to reach out to individuals and complete the survey with them. In doing so, please make sure that ONLY the information of the individual you are assisting is included in the responses
Direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
