Community Health Assessment

The Community Health Status Assessment provides quantitative data on a broad array of health indicators, including behavioral risk factors, environmental health, and other measures that reflect a broad definition of health. It helps to determine where the community stands in relation to state data, national data, and Healthy People 2020 goals. Questions answered include:

"How healthy are our residents?"

"What does the health status of our community look like?"


The Community Health Status Assessment process kicked off with a meeting on Saint Patricks' Day, March 17, 2011 at the Geauga County Board of Mental Health and Recovery Services. Over the course of the next years the following major events occurred:
