Mecklenburg County Community Health Assessment 

 About the Community Health Assessment

The Mecklenburg Community Health Assessment (CHA) is conducted once every four years to provide an overview of selected health indicators across the county includes community prioritization to identify the health issues needing the greatest attention. In 2017, Mecklenburg County Public Health began collecting community input on our health issues through a health opinion survey, community prioritization sessions and our priority setting event. Input gathered from those three methods were combined and the top 4 issues identified in the 2017-2018 CHA prioritization process were:

  1. Mental Health
  2. Access to Care
  3. Chronic Disease Prevention
  4. Violence Prevention
