After developing a plan to collect data to further inform stigma manifestation, the stigma workgroup further split into two smaller working groups. These smaller groups continued to meet weekly to develop the items necessary for implementing the survey including the survey itself and community engagement materials.

COP-RCORP Community Behavioral Health Survey FAQs

What is the survey about?
The survey is to understand community attitudes toward behavioral health, such as mental illness and substance use disorder.
How did participants take the survey?
The post cards sent to participants had a link to the survey and were sent in the mail. Participants clicked the link or received a paper copy of the survey closer to the deadline and returned it by mail.
Why were some people chosen and some not?
Participants were chosen based on a bank of publicly available addresses in the community. Addresses were randomly chosen to make sure that we heard from people throughout the entire county. No names weare associated with addresses and will never be linked to survey responses. Answers are anonymous and nothing included on the survey will be associated with any identifying information.
Why was I not chosen?
While we would love to survey everyone, that wasn’t in our budget. We apologize if you were not chosen and would like to participate, but there are no plans to send out more invitations.
How will survey answers be used?
Survey answers will be anonymous and nothing included on the survey will be associated with any identifying information about participants(not their name, address, etc.). Everyone’s results will be analyzed and reported together as a large group response and no individual results will be shared. The response will help prevention specialists by:
  • Providing information to guide future activities and project implementation.
  • Gaining a sense of community attitudes toward mental health and substance abuse to act against related stigma.
  • Helping to prevent negative outcomes of substance use and mental health concerns.
Who is the survey from?
The survey is from the individual counties (Seneca, Sandusky, Fairfield, Ashtabula) participating in the COP-RCORP initiative in partnership with Ohio University and the Pacific Institute of Research and Evaluation (PIRE) and Gallup.
Who sponsors the survey?
The survey was made possible by a federal grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of HRSA or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
