The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the economies, businesses, schools, health services and lives of Idahoans statewide. The Behavioral Health Division (DBH) of the Idaho Department of Health and Wellness (DHW) is conducting an anonymous statewide survey to better understand how attitudes, needs and behaviors of Idahoans have continued to evolve from the pandemic.
âThe pandemic has changed many aspects of our lives over the past year and a half,â said Danielle Pere, office manager at DBH. “We want to learn more about how this has affected the Idahoans so that we can help fill the gaps and respond more effectively as the pandemic continues.”
The results of the investigation will provide the state government and the public with relevant information on the health and social impacts associated with the pandemic. A better understanding of the impacts COVID-19 has had on the people of Idaho will help inform policy decisions, the deployment of resources, and the development and delivery of programs and products. Once the results are compiled, they will be posted on the Behavioral Health Division webpage, coronavirus.idaho.gov, and https://ioem.idaho.gov/covidhelpnow/.
The survey is open to all residents of Idaho until October 31 at: https://app.keysurvey.com/f/41586564/24e3/.
