Mental health and drug use, chronic conditions such as heart disease and breast cancer, community conditions such as transportation and housing, access to health care, and nutrition and healthy eating were identified as most significant in an assessment of community health needs by the Geauga Public Health department.

The community health needs assessment is conducted every three years and is used to help guide priorities in terms of health and social needs in the county and to inform different organizations’ expanding in services, said Geauga Public Health epidemiologist Sarah Sullivan.
