Families, Youth and Young Adults who have Utilized Telehealth to Access Mental Health Services During the Pandemic- We Need You to Share Your Experience & Perspectives About Telehealth!
Click here to participate in a short ten question survey.
Michigan, as many of you know, has been working on various plans and strategies to re-imagine and improve the mental health system in our state for quite some time. Recently the value and convenience of tele-health as an on-going option to provide easily accessible services and supports even after the pandemic has passed has been a new hot topic of discussion during system improvement meetings. Multiple groups are currently examining the benefits of telehealth and looking at how agencies and the behavioral health system might better use or expand its use in the future. But in order to make good decisions about the continued role of telehealth in our mental health service delivery system, decision makers must better understand how telehealth services benefit or affect real people in the community and your experiences are key. So, as these discussions take place it is critically important to ensure your voices are part of the conversation and that community leaders have an opportunity to hear your input.
ACMH has recently created a Telehealth Survey for youth, families and young adults as one venue to help gather your feedback. The brief ten question survey contains a series of questions about your experiences with telehealth and any positive effects, challenges or barriers you may have faced. It also asks you to share your thoughts about the benefits or possible downfalls of its increased use, and what things you think need to be considered as plans and decisions about the role or place of telehealth for the provision of mental health services in the future continue.
Please consider taking time to participate in the survey to share your input. Your personal experience, expertise and perspectives are an invaluable tool as these groups make decisions about telehealth and continue work to shape mental health services, supports, policies and service models in our state!
