About St. Clair County’s CHNA and CHIP

Since 2000, by request of the St. Clair County Health Department (SCCHD), a professional consulting company has conducted the St. Clair County Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFS) every five years. This survey provides data for the St. Clair County Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA). CHNA data collected highlights health status and health behaviors of St. Clair County residents. CHNA identifies key health needs and issues through an organized, thorough data collection and analysis. From the CHNA, a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) will be created and target priority areas to be addressed including involving a wide array of St. Clair County community partners and residents. Over the years, more data that is robust came from secondary data sources.

In 2018, the first CHIP started. In 2021, a comprehensive CHNA was completed, and a new CHIP needs to be developed with key community partners. The planning process and input from community partners from private sectors and the residents will identify priority local health issues, concerns, and needs. Together, this engaged group will work together towards a healthier tomorrow. 

After 1942, SCCHD’s mission reflected in Michigan’s Public Health Code has diligently worked to prevent disease, prolong life, and promote the public health through organized programs.  Throughout the years until current, SCCHD has strongly provided the necessary tools, information, and leadership to allow a broad and dynamic response to the issues facing the community of St. Clair County.
