You’re invited to attend a community needs assessment data workshop. While this virtual workshop is open to the public, this opportunity intends to provide technical assistance to National Network to Eliminate Disparities in Behavioral Health (NNED) members (free to join) and minority-serving and under-resourced community-based organizations (CBOs).
After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Understand the purpose of a community needs assessment
- Identify who should be involved in a community needs assessment
- Plan and conduct a community needs assessment
- Learn about the impact made by community needs assessment reports
