Denton County, TX

Denton County Federation of Families is partnering with the Denton community including the Denton County Mental Health Mental Retardation Center, the Denton County Health Department, Touched by Suicide, Youth and Family Counseling, and United Way of Denton County to enable a series of Community Conversations. We had 117 participants in our Psychdata survey that closed 11/22/13! Visit http://www.psychdata.com/app/Report/Data/K/101647K3ZJG to see the initial quantitative data (answers from multiple choice and yes/no questions) and come back here for a report that includes a summary of both qualitative (open ended questions that allowed participants to say whatever they wanted to say) and quantitative data by January 2014!

Here is a link to an overview of preliminary data fron the quantitative portion in the CCS format http://creatingcommunitysolutions.org/outcomes/denton-county-federation-families 

 

This series has included the following events:

  • United Way of Denton County released it's 2013 Mental Health Report for Denton County and we will support dissemination of that report throughout the series.
  • Denton County MHMR Fun Run 9/14/13 at SouthLakes Park followed by Resource Fair and Family Fun and Denton Conversation events. This was quite a success! Community Conversations participants provided a resource fair and a pilot of the survey that is now online (see below).
