Good morning NYS Council Members,

The organizations (listed below) that represent adults, children and youth served by the state’s community-based mental health and substance use systems of care, request that your organization please complete the brief survey (at link below) to assist us in gathering important data to support our joint advocacy efforts.  As we prepare for the SFY 2023-24 budget session, the importance of workforce data is critical to sustain our operations, services, and program.  The information collected will only be used in the aggregate, and no individual providers will be identified. We are collecting organization names solely for internal purposes. Please note: You may receive this link from multiple associations/coalitions; please complete only once.

Please complete the survey at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TC6M7RF

If you or your staff have any questions regarding this survey, please email negrimanagementllc@gmail.com or feel free to reach out to me at:  lauri@nyscouncil.org
