Time Sensitive: Attention NYS Council CEOs & Agency Advocates

July 5, 2023

As we prepare for the SFY 2024-25 budget and legislative session, the importance of workforce data is critical to our advocacy efforts.  To this end, a group of regional and statewide organizations representing adult and children/youth mental health and substance use disorder providers, peers and families, requests that you ensure completion of the brief Survey (linked below).

Note:  The information collected from your agency will only be used in the aggregate, and no individual providers will be identified. We are collecting organization names solely for internal purposes.   

You may receive this link from multiple associations/coalitions; please have your organization complete the survey at the link only once.  


Please complete the survey at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SJZM933

If you or your staff have any questions regarding this Survey, please reach out to me at:  (518) 461-8200.

Thank you!Lauri
