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.
