NYC Neighborhood Wellness Survey

The NYC Neighborhood Wellness Survey will help The NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to better understand the impact of COVID-19 on current NYC community behavioral health needs. It will be the largest citywide population health survey to date, and aims to reach 50,000 NYC residents aged 18 or older to assess current, self-reported mental health status, intellectual developmental disability, substance use, service utilization/gaps, and social needs. 

Information from this survey will help the NYC Health Department to identify and address areas of distress and greatest need among the overall NYC population, as well as among at-risk segments of the population, including children and adolescents, Black, Indigenous, and people of color, older adults, individuals impacted by the criminal legal system, and individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities. The results will support the NYC Health Department’s efforts to strengthen mental, behavioral health and substance use systems by informing how innovative approaches and methods of service delivery can be integrated and expanded to meet the public’s needs.
