Live Well, Mohave initiative hopes to improve health in the county

 

MOHAVE COUNTY – The Mohave County Department of Public Health and Kingman Regional Medical Center are pleased to announce the release of the 2020 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).

 

The CHIP initiative, Live Well, Mohave identifies goals, objectives and strategies for the communities of Kingman, Bullhead City and Lake Havasu City to support work in the priority areas identified by residents, agencies, and stakeholders.

The priority areas identified are: substance abuse; obesity, teen pregnancy, mental health, and access to care. 

“Both mental health and opioid abuse are significant issues in Mohave County,” said Health Director Patty Mead. “We need the support of the entire community to address all these issues and we need to leverage and build upon initiatives and coalitions already in place to improve the health outcomes of Mohave County.”

Live Well, Mohave is a living document that will serve as a guide over the next three years and will be updated with the successes and opportunities to promote health outcomes in Mohave County.

Now through May 15, we encourage your comments and suggestions at E-mail on activities for addressing the communities selected priorities. We ask that you:

  • Review the goals and objectives
  • Identify any new strategies or existing coalitions to support the goals
  • Sign up to be a part of an action team to implement the work in one of our priority areas

To launch the Live Well, Mohave initiative, a community meeting will be held in each region: from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. May 17 at KRMC’s main conference room at its Hualapai Mountain Campus, 3810 Santa Rosa; 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lake Havasu Senior Center at 450 Acoma Blvd. South; and from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. May 18 at the Bullhead City Police Department Training Room, 1255 Marina Blvd.
