The Maine Association of Family Organizations (MAFO), Disability Rights Maine (DRM), and the Maine Developmental Disabilities Council (MDDC) want to know how your child's behavioral health services have been impacted during the pandemic and state of emergency. We know that this unprecedented health crisis has left many of you feeling overwhelmed and isolated.  In March, several family organizations along with the MDDC solicited your input about how your child(ren)’s school, in-home, and community-based services were impacted.  This feedback has been crucial to our work over the past few months.  The results were sent to state leadership and other stakeholders to ensure that everyone had an understanding of the experiences and needs of families. 

Now that several months have gone by, we are asking for your input again, specific to children’s behavioral health services.  Although no immediate changes will likely result, it is so important for as much family perspective as possible to inform the state’s response and our advocacy work.  We know many families are feeling survey fatigue and we are committed to providing other ways to get feedback if that would be more accessible to you.  Please feel free to contact any of our organizations at the numbers below if you would like to have a conversation about your family’s experience or discuss ways we may be able to provide additional support. 

Please note that responses to this survey are anonymous.  Thank you for sharing your story with us.
