The goal of the Community Health Needs Assessment conducted every 3-5 years is to identify the top health needs among Burnett County residents. Each assessment involves holding a Community Health Meeting where the results of the assessment are presented and community representatives in attendance will help to prioritize the identified needs. Out of the process, three health needs will be determined to be the top health needs in Burnett County at the time of the assessment.
See below for a history of the assessments.
The 2012-2013 Community Health Needs Assessment was presented on May 10, 2013. As a result, the top health needs were identified as, Mental/Behavioral Health, Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse, and Nutrition and Healthy Foods.
The 2015-2016 Community Health Needs Assessment was presented on April 15, 2016. As a result, the top health needs were identified as, Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse, Mental/Behavioral Health, and Tobacco Use and Exposure.
