Maine Behavioral Health Provider Disaster Preparedness Survey Summary Results, July 2017

with No Comments

A survey of providers, including organizations such as mental and behavioral health, crisis services, hospitals, substance abuse providers and community support programs, was distributed by Maine DHHS/ Center for Disease Control and Prevention Disaster Behavioral Health program to determine the state of readiness of the social services networks. The results of the 2017 survey provide a snapshot of the state of community emergency preparedness. Some agencies did not respond to all survey questions, so we have identified the number of providers who responded to specific questions. We compared the results to a similar survey conducted in 2013, and identified objectives to help increase statewide capabilities to plan and train collaboratively within the Hospital Preparedness Program (HPP) and Public Health Emergencies Program(PHEP).
