The Regional Advisory Councils of the Georgia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) has launched a major study to identify community needs.

This study is an online survey that is free, anonymous, brief, and open to all residents of Georgia. Below are the links to English and Spanish versions:



We are eager to hear from 8,000 Georgians representing all 159 counties. The survey period will close on April 15, 2019.

Please respond to the survey yourself, encourage others to participate, and share this information on your social media.

If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact Zenawit Nerae, community involvement intern,, 240-360-0583.

Thank you for helping people with disabilities gain independence and recovery and helping communities strengthen prevention and early intervention.
