In 2007-2008 the Healthy York County Coalition initiated its fifth community health assessment since 1994. Research for the health assessment incorporates a three pronged approach including a review of demographic and secondary data such as vital statistics; implementation of a random telephone survey of 600 York County residents; and the facilitation of focus groups.
The coalition is concentrating special attention on the issues of behavioral health and substance abuse services for young people in York County. Focus group participants include professionals serving youth, parents of adolescents, and young people themselves. By exploring the behavioral health and substance abuse issues from a variety of perspectives, the coalition hopes to generate a comprehensive understanding of the needs and identify what role the coalition might play in addressing those concerns.
Community health assessment results will be released to the community in the fall of 2008. This information will serve as the basis for establishing new partnerships in community problem solving and capacity building.
