Harbor Regional Center has selected the University of New Hampshire as the recipient of resource development funding, to develop Crisis Services for Harbor Regional Center clients. They have developed the survey below as a way to get more familiar with our community needs. They are hoping to collect as many responses as possible from individuals and families receiving services, as well as those providing services, or working in any aspect of the service system (mental health, ID/DD services, education, drug/alcohol treatment, hospitals, justice, etc.).
Dear Community Partner,
This survey is being conducted by the Center for START Services (CSS) at the University of New Hampshire’s Institute on Disability/UCED in partnership with the State of California Regional Centers as part of the expansion of START services in California. Part of this process is an evaluation of the current service system for individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (IDD) and mental health needs (IDD-MH). The goal is to determine what services are currently working well in your region and where improvements are needed. This list of questions is intended to learn from you about existing services in your community for people with IDD-MH, including persons with autism. This survey includes services that may be funded by regional centers, county mental health/behavioral services or insurance.
Please rate each question listed using the scale found below and put additional explanations in the space provided. When responding about service availability in your community, please think about community as the area in which you or the people that you serve can realistically access needed services. At the end of the survey, we welcome you to identify any additional gaps in service effectiveness that you would like us to be aware of.
We are hoping to collect as many responses as possible from individuals working in or using any aspect of the service system (mental health, ID/DD services, education, drug/alcohol treatment, hospitals, justice, etc.), so please take a few minutes to both complete this survey by clicking on the link below, and then to forward this link to as many people within your organization and/or contact list as possible and ask them to complete it and forward it as well.

If you have any problems with the link, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to assist.
We sincerely appreciate your help as we work together to enhance services in California for individuals with IDD and their families. Thanks for your time.
