2018 Utilization in Mental Health Services Survey
Thank you for your interest in the Utilization in Mental Health Study! Your time and opinions are greatly appreciated.
One of our main goals is to assess the kinds of barriers that block access to mental health services for adults 50-years or older who reside in rural communities. We are also interested in determining the needs for these services, and what factors might increase the use of these services.
You will notice there are many parts to this questionnaire; this reflects the number of things that we are interested in surveying. We understand that completion of this survey is time consuming. Please know that your time and efforts will contribute to a greater understanding of mental and emotional functioning in older adults. Moreover, it will provide information that may influence decisions that community agencies make regarding access to mental health services, especially for rural areas.
We ask that you do several things in completing this survey:
1) As you complete this survey, please do so without the help or opinions of others.
2) We would appreciate your honest and thoughtful responses. Please do not censor your responses based on how you think you should respond.
3) Take your time; you need not complete the survey in one sitting.
4) Read each question carefully before you respond. You need not answer any question you are not comfortable answering, but, of course, the more questions you leave blank, the less valid and useful your survey will be.
Your participation is voluntary, and should pose no physical or psychological risks. Please be assured that all information is confidential. Any data, when reported, will be based on group means. You will not be able to be identified by your answers, and your computer address will not be recorded. You are free to discontinue the survey at any time by closing your browser window.
At the end of the survey, there is a page for you to enter your name and contact information if you would like to be entered into one of two drawings for $250.00 each. This page will be separated from your responses. The drawing will be held when we have received all the surveys needed to conclude this study and the winner will be contacted.
Please indicate whether you are interested in receiving a copy of the results of this survey, and we will mail a copy of the report to you when it is finished.
We trust that you will find the survey both interesting and thoughtful. Again, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your help with this very important project!
