Personal protective equipment (PPE) for Behavioral Health Providers survey

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the Health Care Authority has received feedback from Prevention, Treatment and Recovery support service providers related to the access of Personal Protections Equipment (PPE).

Although there is some access to PPE via public and private avenues, we continue to hear of access or shortage struggles. We are also aware many of you have sent weekly requests to your local health jurisdictions and/or emergency management offices for PPE. Based on supplies to date, fulfillment of your requests has been spotty, depending on your geographic location. 

We have been asked to quantify the outstanding need for PPE by Behavioral Health Providers in Washington State. We are asking all behavioral health providers to take our survey. We will share the survey results with our state agency partners and any future private partners. Our goal is that state and private partners will be interested in helping address the gap between need and access. Your responses to the survey will not place an order or replace the request made to your local health jurisdiction and/or emergency management offices. 

  • Survey must be completed by Friday, July 10
