The South Central Alabama Mental Health Center is seeking input from the public and requesting assistance with the completion of a community needs assessment survey.

“We are committed to enhancing mental health services in our community, and we believe your input can play a vital role in shaping our initiatives. By answering a few questions, you can help us better understand the community’s needs, allowing us to tailor our services to ensure they are effective for everyone.

Thank you for being an essential part of our commitment to community well-being,” SCAMHC officials said.
