How do we improve the health and quality of life
in our communities across northern Michigan?
We begin with a Community Health Assessment.
MiThrive brings together cross-sector partners and residents across the 31 counties of Northern Lower Michigan to conduct a community health assessment and collaborate for community health improvement.
WE HAVE DATA
MiThrive uses the Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnerships Framework, the gold-standard for Community Health Assessment and Community Health Improvement Planning.
The Community System Assessment focuses on organizations that contribute to community wellbeing. It answers the questions, “What are the components, activities, competencies, and capacities in the regional system?” and “How are services being provided to our residents?” The MiThrive Community System Assessment 2021 Reports are organized at the regional level.
The Forces of Change Assessment aims to answer the following questions: “What is occurring or might occur that affects the health of our community or the local system?” and “What specific threats or opportunities are generated by these occurrences?” The MiThrive Forces of Change Assessment 2021 Reports are organized at the regional level.
