San Luis Obispo County residents who have received behavioral health services during the pandemic are being asked to give feedback on their experience.

The survey is conducted by the County of San Luis Obispo's Behavioral Health Department. Some of the questions ask about the clients' experiences, and how they prefer to be helped (in person or online). The survey is anonymous.

“It is important to us to make sure we are meeting the needs of our clients,” says Amanda Getten, the Quality Support Division Manager for Behavioral Health. “This last year has been extremely challenging and we want to make sure we are still meeting our clients’ needs and improving ways to bring recovery and resilience to our county.”

The County's behavioral health services have remained ongoing amid the pandemic. Residents with serious mental illness and addiction treatment can receive care both in-person and via telehealth.
