Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP)

More than 3,500 community members and organizations were involved in the first-ever Metro Region Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) process to prioritize mental health. The CHIP report, released in April 2021, which can be accessed here, outlined a commitment to improve mental health across the region using these shared strategies:

In March 2022, we published an update of the Metro Region CHIP, to share new information and celebrate the progress we’ve made toward these priorities. New data is now available via the 2021 Community Health Assessment (CHA) and provides formal evaluation of the Region’s Mental Health Stigma Reduction Campaign.

We invite you – the community – to join in this collective work:

  1. Check out the March 2022 Update to the Metro Region CHIP. 
  2. Read, submit, and share stories about why mental health is important at WhatMakesUs gathers and shares testimonials of people living with mental health conditions and their allies to reduce stigma. 
  3. For more information on this regional effort, please contact
