Through a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA), Mesa County Health Department, in conjunction with community partners, identified obesity, suicide, and unintended pregnancy as Mesa County’s Winnable Battles to be addressed over the next three to five years by identifying and implementing effective strategies to address them. Mesa County Health Department has worked with community partners to identify key public health priorities that have a large-scale impact on health and quality of life. The Health Department will lead efforts to achieve measurable impacts in these areas.
Once the CHNA is complete, Mesa County will release a Community Health Improvement Plan, approved by a Population Health Advisory Committee, which will outline the overall health of Mesa County and identify strategies to address health issues.
Progress on the winnable battles will be tracked by measuring health outcomes associated with the specific strategies. A first step toward improving outcomes was the Suicide Prevention Summit held on March 31st, at Two Rivers Convention Center. Click here for a review of the Suicide Prevention Summit.
