Current Health Priorities
In 2018, Eau Claire County released the Community Health Assessment (CHA). Through this extensive CHA process, residents prioritized mental health, substance use, and alcohol misuse as the top three health issues.
Eau Claire Healthy Communities has been working on the identified CHA priorities over the past few years: alcohol use, chronic disease prevention/obesity, mental health, healthy relationship promotion and oral health. After approval of the 2018 Community Health Assessment, Healthy Communities adopted the following health priorities for its 2018–2021 Community Health Improvement Plan:
