United Way partners with UW-Stout for community awareness survey

Posted:

Eau Claire (WQOW) -- The United Way wants to know what community issues are important to you, and if you feel those issues are being addressed.

Next month, The United Way of the Greater Chippewa Valley will partner with UW-Stout applied psychology students to collect data through a survey regarding community awareness of United Way initiatives.

United Way's Executive Director, Jan Porath, said the survey's results will help the organization better gauge which initiatives need focus.

"Our intention was to raise awareness about mental health and mental illness in the community, to reduce stigma about that," said Porath. "To provide resources for individuals to go to if they had some needs, as well, around mental health and mental illness." 

Porath said the other initiatives included in the survey, along with health, will be education and financial stability.

The survey will be released online March 12 and will be open through the end of March.
