For tomorrow’s meeting, I’d like to get people’s input on a project that is being launched soon. OHA is working to launch a web site that will connect people with behavioral health supports. It’s meant to be a “one stop shop” for people seeking services. We are in the very early stages of this process, and we’re trying to design the page around the needs of the people who will use it… which means being led by the input we get from consumers and peers.
So here are some questions the web design and marketing folks have asked us to help get them started:
+ How are you feeling right now? What do you think could help? What would make you feel better?
+ Have you ever searched online for mental health or addiction recovery services?
+ What does success look like for you when it comes to mental health and recovery?
+ When looking for services & supports, what do you hope to get out of working with a treatment provider? (therapist, psychiatrist, counselor, or peer support specialist)
+ If an online portal was available to help link you to services, what types of features or tools would you find most helpful?
As always, you’re welcome to send an email or give me a call if you can’t join our meeting tomorrow.
We’ll be putting together a consumer steering committee for this project, so if you’re interested in joining that please let me know! Thanks, all.
