The Office of Mental Health’s Office of Consumer Affairs, in collaboration with the Office of Addiction Services and Supports (OASAS), invites you to participate in a survey to help us understand how best to support New Yorkers in the process of healing.

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. 

You may have already taken this survey yourself. If you are a service provider (including peer support service providers, peer specialists, and recovery peer advocates), please bring this survey to the attention of those you support - and their families.
