Mental health survey results released
(Port Orchard, WA)
Kitsap County recently conducted a survey regarding the 1/10th of 1% Mental
Health, Chemical Dependency and Therapeutic Courts sales tax funding
priorities. This retail sales tax funds a county-wide infrastructure for
behavioral health treatment programs and services. Substance abuse and
mental health services are viewed as existing on a continuum of prevention,
intervention, treatment and recovery support services.
The 2014 Kitsap County Behavioral Health Strategic Plan identified key
recommendations to address local gaps in these services. The survey asked
our community to help identify funding priorities for these local tax
dollars. The survey was conducted between February 12 and April 7, 2014. 437
responses were received. Click
