Morris County Community Health Needs Assessment Survey

April 22, 2024

Are you a Morris County resident? The College of New Jersey, in partnership with the Morris Regional Health Partnerships and Morris County Health Departments, is excited to launch the Community Health Needs Assessment survey. As a leader in healthy living, the Madison Area YMCA encourages all Morris County residents to take a few moments to complete the survey or forward the information to a friend or family member. Your input will help shape the future of health initiatives in our area. 

This survey is for participants who are age 18 or older. This survey is anonymous. That is, we are not asking for information that would allow anyone to find out who you are or to link your answers back to you. The survey will take about 20 minutes or less to complete. Feel free to skip any questions that you do not want to answer. We appreciate your help in advancing the well-being of our community.

At the end of this survey, you will have an option to tell us more about your concerns or tell us a story in a small group Chat or an individual interview. To be in the Chat or Individual Interview, we will need you to please provide your email or phone number. That information will be stored in a separate database and your answers there cannot be linked to your answers in this survey. We will use the contact information to reach out to you for a small group chat or an individual interview to hear more from you about the community health concerns.

The survey is a crucial component of a larger effort to gather data from various sources, compiling them into a comprehensive document to provide insights into the health status of our community residents. Information collected will be utilized by the Board of Health to guide their planning initiatives effectively. Your participation is essential, as the more responses received, the better their efforts will be to meet the needs of our community.

Questions? Please contact Brenda Seals at 609-771-2130 or If you have questions or concerns about your rights as a participant, you can call or e-mail the TCNJ Institutional Review Board Chair, Dr. Sandy Gibson, at 609-771-2136 or


 “The community health survey is a collective investment in your community and your neighborhood. By sharing your experiences and insights, we can contribute to a clearer understanding of the community’s health needs and priorities, tailoring our public health planning to the specific needs of the community. As a Morris County resident, I have already done my part and I hope you do too”!
