COVID-19 Mental Health Impact Survey

Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services Logo

The DMHAS Office of the Commissioner, through the Office of Recovery Community Affairs, is conducting a survey to assess the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health of Connecticut residents. Critical to better understanding the current and future needs of our residents and those of the persons we serve in our system, this survey will help inform policy and programmatic decisions. To participate, a respondent must be 18 years of age or older and be a resident of Connecticut.

The survey will be available online, on paper and over the phone in English, Spanish and Portuguese. A link is provided below for dissemination, paper copies can be mailed to agencies upon request, and any person who wishes to take the survey over the phone will be able to do so by calling 475-434-1899 or 475-355-5393 Monday through Friday from 10AM to 12PM. There is an option to complete the survey on behalf of someone who, for whatever reason, cannot or does not feel comfortable completing it themselves. Those who don’t have internet access or are unable to use the other formats offered can ask that a provider, friend or family member fill it out on their behalf.

We ask you to broadly disseminate the survey using the link below, the pencil and paper version, and/or the phone number to all persons who receive services and encourage them to complete it. Staff at agencies should be ready to provide any support to persons who are unable to take the survey virtually by offering other available formats and, as a last option, to fill it out on their behalf. In the event that staff takes the survey on behalf of a client, they should be aware that the client should be present in person or on the phone and that the responses should reflect the person’s answers.


Phone number 475-434-1899 or 475-355-5393 Mondays - Fridays 10AM-12PM.

If you have any questions or would like additional information about the survey feel free to contact Ana Florence at
