Charlotte, NC – As Mecklenburg County prepares for another challenging budget year, Area Mental Health, Substance Abuse and Developmental Disability services (AMH) is asking the community to help prioritize services.
AMH has held a variety of public meetings with mental health, substance abuse and developmental disability providers, stakeholders, advocacy groups, consumers and residents seeking input into state and county budget reductions for fiscal year 2011. Groups were asked to rank the five most essential services and the five least essential services provided in the community.
The public may continue to participate in this process and provide suggestions about which services the community believes are the most critical and least essential.
Simply log on to MeckLINK.CharMeck.org and click on the Critical Services Survey link. The deadline for completing the survey is Friday, Feb. 26, 2010.
The AMH budget committee will use this input to develop state and county reduction proposals, and then communicate final decisions with Mecklenburg County residents via the AMH Web site, http://MeckLINK.CharMeck.org
