The Original Invitation

Contribute to the OMH Office of Consumer Affair's "New York as Center of Healing" Conversation 

We invite you and the people you support to participate in a survey that will inform how we work toward our goal. So much has happened in the world since the beginning of 2020. Most of us can identify with a need for healing at the personal, community, state, national and global level. Take a moment to imagine:

What if New York was the Center of Healing for the World? 

We asked participants at a recent OMH Regional Advisory Committee (RAC) meeting to consider this question and discuss what our systems of care can do to create a greater sense of healing in today’s world. Many of their ideas were incorporated into the survey, and your answers to the questions will help us to discover what people who live or work in New York State find most healing and most helpful for systems of care to consider in their service delivery and quality improvement efforts. 

Whether you are a current or former recipient of services, a family member, a provider of services, a peer specialist or advocate, trainer, researcher, administrator, coordinator, or otherwise involved in systems of care, take the survey and let us know what helps and what gets in the way of creating a greater sense of healing in the world today.

If you live or work in New York State, we are very interested in your thoughts about what contributes to a sense of healing, and what programs in New York can do to support healing in today's world. If you are a service provider, please make sure to bring this survey to the attention of those you serve.
