Goals and Strategies for Community Health Improvement.

Goals

Goal 1: By December 31, 2020 there will be a decrease in hospitalizations or completed  suicides among Florence County residents from 12 to 10. Goal 2: Increase percentage of emergency contacts with HSD resulting in a diversion/safety plan from 63% to 73% by Dec. 31 2020 Lack of resources for community members with mental health problems was the primary reason the group chose this area as the second focus area. Both goals focus on reducing completed suicides while increasing awareness about the resources available in the community.
